User facilities at the OncoRay Center

Experimental area for proton research
The core of the OncoRay research building is an innovative proton facility. While patients are being treated, OncoRay scientists can concurrently conduct research on and improve the use of protons in cancer therapy. To this end, the proton beam is directed via a separate beamline to an experimental area. Whenever the proton beam is not needed for treating patients it can be used to investigate the impact of the particles in vitro or in vivo or to address physical and technical issues.
The experimental area can also be used by external researchers.
