Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

 

In new promising radiotherapies like radionuclide therapies and boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) biological effects of the radiation have to be studied on cellular scale. The aim of the research is to develop more realistic 3D cell cluster models and dosimetry software for the cellular and sub-cellular dosimetry and to study the significance of the models for the analysis of the biological effects of the radiation. State-of-the-art 3D microscope technology is used to generate the necessary data for the models. The data is analysed by sophisticated segmentation software and input to the dosimetry software. The results of the radiation effects in different cell cluster models are compared and analysed.
