Présentation

Thongchai Masilela is currently completing his 2nd year of PhD studies as part of the New Approaches in Radiotherapy (NARA) team of Institut Curie. He is funded by the Imperial College London-CNRS joint PhD programme. His project aims to explore the vast terra incognita of the mechanisms by which the biological response to ionising radiation is modulated by the physical characteristics of new radiotherapy techniques, such as spatial fractionation. This includes the development of fast, detailed simulations of the micro-biophysical processes that underpin the radiobiological effect of ionising radiation, and the use of simulation codes to optimise the design of LhARA (the Laser-hybrid Accelerator for Radiobiological Applications).
