Speaker: Taku Inaniwa, National Institute for Quantum Science and Technology, Japan

Taku Inaniwa, Ph.D, is a group leader of treatment beam research group at the Institute for Quantum Medical Science, National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology (QST) in Japan. His research focuses on developing dose calculation algorithms and biological models used for charged-particle therapy treatment planning. He has contributed more than 100 peer reviewed publications. He is a member of international scientific advisory board of Physics in Medicine and Biology. For his works, he has received several national and international awards. From April 2022, he has concurrently served as a guest professor at Division of Health Science, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University.
Charged-particle therapy with carbon ions (C-ion RT) has attracted growing interest due to their advantageous physical and biological characteristics. So far more than 40,000 patients have been treated worldwide. During the past three decades, C-ion RT has made remarkable progress in clinical and technological aspects. In my presentation, I would like to introduce physics, dosimetry, radiation biology, carbon RBE, and some clinical results of C-ion RT.

Technical support, promotion, recording: Prof. M. Stoeva
