Leeds scientists lead next generation of radiotherapy treatments

Leeds scientists and clinicians have been awarded a major cash boost from Cancer Research UK to pioneer new radiotherapy technologies that could help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.

Led by Professor David Sebag-Montefiore, experts from the University of Leeds and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust are set to receive £3.5 million over the next five years to fund advances in radiotherapy research, including the use of artificial intelligence with imaging technology.
