Electron Interactions with Bio-Molecules

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    The interaction of free electrons and positrons with biological systems significantly modify chemical environments and play a pivotal role in a range of medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures This project will enhance our understanding of these processes by investigating the interaction of electrons and positrons with a range of important bio-molecules using state-of-the-art measurement apparatus. These studies will have application in areas such as radiation damage to tissues and cells, either intentional or otherwise, and imaging techniques such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) which are used to detect cancer and evaluate effects of cancer therapies.
