Dr McMahon’s research focuses on applying mathematical and computational techniques to better understand and describe radiation responses.
This techniques have been applied in a range of areas, including the use of gold nanoparticle radiosensitisers; predicting differential effects of X-ray, proton and carbon ion irradiation; and exploring the impact of intercellular communication on radiation sensitivity.
By linking these models with clinical applications, they can serve to bridge the gap between lab and clinic and inform future radiotherapy treatments.
Dr McMahon is open to PhD applications in areas of modelling responses to radiotherapy, including;
