Excursion to MedAustron

You are here: Home » Excursion to MedAustron
MedAustron in Wiener Neustadt is one of the most cutting-edge centres for ion-beam therapy and research in Europe, currently in the commissioning phase. First treatments are scheduled for the upcoming  year 2016  with a steady increase of patient numbers up to 1,200 per year, once the facility is in full operation.

Besides clinical research, the synchrotron-based centre also offers opportunities for non-clinical research activities, especially in medical radiation physics, radiation biology, and experimental physics.

Worldwide, there are only three other centres like MedAustron that offer radiation therapy with both protons and carbon ions in one place.

This excursion is sponsored by MedAustron!
