About my research

"The fascinating part of my research is that I could help people with a cancer disease to minimize the severe complication after irradiation. If particles used for tumor irradiation go too far inside the human body then healthy tissues are damaged. If they do not go far enough, then cancerous tissue grows again.

My goal would be to create a very effective device, which could verify the correct position of shooting particles inside the body during therapy and thus make the treatment better."

About Rosalind Franklin

"Rosalind Franklin was exposed to X-radiation doing her research on DNA, which turned out to be cancerous. In this way her and mine research are correlated. It is an honor to have a position called by her name."
