GRK Medical Physics

The goal of this DFG-funded Research Training Group is to promote young scientists from natural sciences and medicine in this rapidly growing field of medical physics. It covers basic, translational and clinical research, building upon a long tradition of excellence in biomedical research in Munich from the two universities (LMU, TUM) and the Helmholtz Center for Health (HMGU). The multi- and interdisciplinary research programme will touch upon innovative areas of computing, imaging and therapy, addressed in synergistic Ph.D. and M.D. projects with the common goal to advance image-guided cancer therapy.  

Cutting-edge fundamental, translational and clinical research will aim at new strategies for defining the optimal therapeutic concept at the time of diagnosis and treatment planning, ensuring proper treatment delivery and, finally, assisting the physician in evaluating the therapy effectiveness and supporting decision making in patient aftercare.
