Sadie Seddon-Stettler – Awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellow! Being chosen as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow is a significant national accomplishment and places her among an elite group of Fellows, many of whom have gone on to distinguished careers in STEM or STEM education.
Accelerator R&D for Novel Cancer Treatment Modalities Modern radiation therapy techniques are designed to optimize tumor control while limiting collateral damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Shaping the spatial profile of the delivered dose, as well as varying the angle of approach, enabled dramatic advances in cancer therapy. Now clinicians have begun investigating a new frontier for improving cancer therapy through very fast irradiation.
