Research themes and areas of activity
The Advanced Radiotherapy Group (ARG) is a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, physicists, radiation biologists, radiographers and physiologists who remit is to research, initiate and develop new and advanced radiation treatments encompassing basic laboratory research, pre-clinical studies and clinical delivery.
The Medical Bioinformatics Research Section (MBRS, ‘embers’) is a thematic specialism within the Patrick G Johnson Centre for Cancer Research with the goal of advancing research at the interface of computer science, statistics, cell biology and cancer medicine.
Rather than being a single disease, cancer is a heterogeneous collection of diseases. It therefore follows that in order to diagnose and treat cancer effectively, strategies for patient selection must be combined with the development of molecularly targeted therapeutics so that patients can receive the drug or combination of drugs which is most appropriate for the treatment of their disease, at the appropriate time.
