Paul O'Gorman Building | 72 Huntley Street | London | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Professor Maria Hawkins, University of Oxford, presents: 'Precision oesophageal radiotherapy: Getting to the heart of the matter.'

During the last decade, despite several advances in techniques of radiotherapy planning (intensity modulated radiotherapy), tumour imaging (PET, MRI); radiation delivery (rotational arc therapy) the radiotherapy treatments in oesophageal cancers have remained unchanged. Chemoradiation remains the main treatment for inoperable patients and the outcomes have not improved. There is great complexity in the mechanisms that cause local failure to radiation and several aspects co-exist: lack of biological biomarkers for tumour stratification, inadequate radiation dose, hypoxia, and tumour microenvironment.

A light lunch will be served after the seminar. This seminar has been sponsored in part by the Biomedical Research Centre and Cancer Research UK
