Thank you for taking an interest in research at OncoRay – National Center for Radiation Research in Oncology. At OncoRay, some 80 scientists pool their energies to decisively improve the treatment of cancer by the administration of radiation therapy.
To this end, we investigate quantifiable biological factors of tumors, such as genetic modifications and oxygen content, which can influence the effectiveness of radiotherapy. On the basis of these factors, we are able to tailor make our therapies to suit the patients receiving them. We also improve and develop technical devices for radiation therapy as well as for imaging during and after treatments. All of this is designed to increase the chances of recovery and reduce the occurrence of potential side effects.
