  • Scientific Advisor, France Hadron Project The goal of France Hadron was to enable the consolidation of all medical, scientific and technical teams involved in hadrontherapy in France. The international adivisory team consisting of experts in particle therapy evaluated the progress of the project and advixed the project member institutions. (07/2015 - 07/2016)
  • Member - PI, European ANDANTE Consortium The ANDANTE project consisted of 7 European partners and one American parnter (LLU) to investigate the risk of cancer from exposure to low doses of neutrons. The project combined the disciplines of radiation physics, radiobiology, and epidemiology to develop a risk model that to be tested in a prospective study on the incidence of second cancers following exposure to scattered neutrons following pediatric proton therapy.The final project results made a major contribution to our understanding of the risks from low-dose exposure to neutrons, and how the risks vary with neutron energy and dose.
