Joel Chair Lecture
Join us for an historical overview and personal account of the development of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, from its beginnings in the hands of a few workers scattered worldwide, through twenty years of growth and its potential application to the latest research problems. Steve Webb, our distinguished speaker, was part of this early movement at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital, and saw the working out of the main physics of the technique, the development of clinical work and injection of commercial support.
Following the lecture, there will be an opportunity for refreshments and an opportunity for the community to socialise in UCL grounds, weather permitting.
The Joel Chair is the oldest established Chair in Medical Physics in the world. It is currently held by Prof. Robert Speller, Medical Physics & Bioengineering Department, UCL, who welcomes you to what we trust will become a popular and enlightening event for the Medical Physics community.
