Research fellow conducts research to minimize negative effects of cancer treatments

Texas A&M University predoctoral research fellow Gleb Kuzmin and scientists at the National Institutes of Health are conducting research to understand negative effects proton therapy cancer treatments can have on normal human tissue. They are seeking to find not only the best way to accurately estimate unintended radiation dose to normal tissue in the short term, but also to provide efficient and targeted treatment while minimising unintended negative effects.
