Rutherford Innovations is going to use innovative technologies and research to improve outcomes for cancer patients within the UK and internationally

Led by our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Ian Barwick, Rutherford Innovations is developing partnerships and collaborations with researchers and clinicians with the aim to confirm proton beam therapy as an accepted and cost-effective way to treat cancer alongside surgery, chemotherapy, conventional radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Currently, Rutherford Innovations is sponsoring a major project with the University of Liverpool, to develop an innovative proton beam detector for improving the way the proton beam is measured and used, to treat patients and stems from the University’s links with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. Rutherford Innovations is in discussion with a number of researchers, about providing access to proton beam time for research projects and would be pleased to discuss this facility with other research groups.

By working in collaboration with key strategic partners and industry leaders, such as Philips, Elekta, IBA and a number of UK universities, Rutherford Innovations will be able to advance research and future technologies  in the oncology field.
