The mission of the Joint Department
of Physics, which spans both The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation
Trust and The Institute of Cancer Research, is to develop
and apply techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Within the Foundation Trust, the major roles of the Department
are to provide support for the clinical activities of Radiotherapy,
Nuclear Medicine and Radiology and to manage a radiation
Within the Institute we pursue a research
and postgraduate teaching programme. Major research areas
include conformal and stereotactic radiotherapy, intensity-modulated
radiation therapy, radiopharmaceutical development, biologically
targeted radionuclide therapy and diagnostic imaging.
The Department conducts research into
physics as applied to medicine and then acts as the translator
of this research into clinical practice.
