Optimization of Medical Accelerators (OMA)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2020,

... r is a major social problem, and it is the main cause of death between the ages 45-65 years. In the treatment of cancer, radio therapy (RT) plays an essential role. RT with hadrons (protons and light ions), due to their unique physical and radiobiological properties, offers several advantages over photons for specific cancer types. In particular, they penetrate the patient with minimal diffusion, ...

... ness and high Tm one to form the reinforcing fibres. To reach unprecedented stiffness in the reinforcing PLA fibres, we will combine PLA with bio-LCP (liquid crystalline polymer) for nanofibril formation. Further, we will increase the temperature resistance of PLA and improve its durability. This way, BIO4SELF will exploit recent progress in PLA fibre technology. We will add inherent self-function ...

MYRRHA Research and Transmutation Endeavour (MYRTE)

Start date: Apr 1, 2015, End date: Mar 31, 2019,

... research facility for all ESNII systems and as such put in the high-priority list of ESFRI. The goal of MYRTE is to perform the necessary research in order to demonstrate the feasibility of transmutation of high-level waste at industrial scale through the development of the MYRRHA research facility. Within MYRRHA as a large research facility, the demonstration of the technological performance of t ...

MyrrhA Research Infrastructure Support Action (MARISA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2016,

"The MYRRHA project aims to develop and to construct a world-class and first-of-a-kind nuclear research infrastructure. The design and the construction of the MYRRHA facility is particularly challenging since it requires the management of a large number of activities in view of achieving technical excellence in compliance with the project budget and schedule. Accordingly, state-of-the-art project ...

Union of Light-Ion Centres in Europe (ULICE)

Start date: Sep 1, 2009, End date: Aug 31, 2014,

ULICE is a 4-year project set up by 20 leading European research organisations, including 2 leading European industrial partners (Siemens and IBA), to respond to the need for greater access to hadron therapy facilities for particle therapy research. Project coordinator is the Italian Research Infrastructure Facility CNAO (Milan). Both existing European Hadron Research Facilities in Heidelberg and ...

European NoVel Imaging Systems for ION therapy (ENVISION)

Start date: Feb 1, 2010, End date: Jul 31, 2014,

Following the pioneering experiences which lasted several decades, particle therapy has become a recognized way of curing cancer. 2 new European dual-ion facilities (Heidelberg, Pavia) will soon become operational, followed by several others which are today at different stages of planning and construction. Hadron therapy faces the challenge of improving treatment outcomes with tools able to provid ...

Particle Training Network for European Radiotherapy (PARTNER)

Start date: Oct 1, 2008, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

"A Particle Training Network for European Radiotherapy (PARTNER) will be established in response to the critical need for reinforcing research in ion therapy and the training of professionals in the rapidly emerging field of hadron therapy. This is an interdisciplinary, multinational initiative, which has the primary goal of training researchers who will help to improve the overall efficiency of i ...

"This project aims at improving drug delivery to cancer cells by developing targeted radiotherapy with alpha-emitting radionuclides. Alpha particles emitted by radionuclides have short tracks (about 100 microns) in body tissues. As a result, they should be most appropriate to treat small-size tumours and isolated cancer cells. This project proposes the development of improved vectors and targeting ...
