Medical PhysicsAssociate Professor TASHIRO, Mutsumi
Heavy-ion radiotherapy is one of the most advanced modalities for cancer therapy. The dose is focused only on the cancer but a smaller dose is delivered to the healthy tissues surrounding the cancer. It is well known that heavy ions kill tissues more successfully than X-rays or hydrogen ions (protons). Many surprising findings have been reported in which the heavy-ion therapy has been used to cure various cancers that were inoperable and X-ray radiotherapy were inapplicable.

To improve radiotherapy and to use space environment, we carry out in vitro and in vivo experiments regarding a variety of radiation-induced biological phenomena. Another important purpose of this course is to increase the experiense of those radiobiology specialists involved in radiotherapy and space science.
