Award for High Precision Radiation Therapy
Professor Christoph Bert, head of the working group Medical Radiation Physics at the Radiation Clinic of University Clinic Erlangen, received the award for High Precision Radiation Therapy 2015 by the German Society for Radiation Oncology e.V. (DEGRO).
He was awarded for his investigations of innovative radiation concepts for treating intra-fractionally moving tumors with scanned ion beams, which mainly originates from his time at GSI before his appointment to the University of Erlangen. The award is endowed with 2000 euro and is supposed to acknowledge outstanding innovations and developments of young scientists within the research area of high precision radiation therapy. The presentation took place during the annual meeting of DEGRO in Hamburg in June 2015.
