Radiation Oncology research

Our researchers in Radiation Oncology look for new ways to treat cancer using radiation.

About Radiation Oncology research

We perform a wide range of research. We research many of the cancers that affect our patients, including:
  • Head & neck cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Urological and gynaecological cancers
  • Brain tumours
  • Gastrointestinal cancers
We're involved in small projects as well as large trials performed in collaboration with other centres across the world. We recently installed a new MRI-guided linear accelerator. This puts us at the forefront of exciting new research opportunities.


How to get involved

If you are being treated in one of our Radiation Oncology centres, speak with your team about whether there is a research project that's right for you.
If you are under the care of a different team, speak with your doctor. Your doctor can refer you to our service if there is a therapy or research trial that's appropriate for you.
We have a strong focus on research. We encourage you to take part in research if you are interested. We offer information on projects that may be suitable for you where possible. Some of our projects are open to volunteers, irrespective of their health status.
If you would like to know more, please contact the Study Coordinator.
