Dr Butterworth’s research focusses on improving the biological effectiveness of radiotherapy by understanding the molecular mechanisms of radiobiological responses in tumours and normal tissues.
Using advanced preclinical models of radiation response, his group aims to develop biologically targeted strategies for the realisation of precision radiotherapy.
Dr Butterworth is open to PhD applications is aspects of multi-disciplinary radiation science including:
Mechanisms of radioresistance
Drug radiotherapy combinations
In vivo models and small animal radiotherapy
PhD title: Evaluation of novel drug radiotherapy combinations in non-small cell lung cancer using high throughput drug screening
