Development of advanced online dosimetry algorithms for photodynamic therapy of tumours
Host institution/company
SpectraCure AB (Sweden)
Supervisors
Academic:
Dr. Nina Reistad, Division of Atomic Physics, Department of Physics, Lund University

Industrial
Dr. Johannes Swartling, Spectracure AB
Type of contract
36-months full-time research grant within the PHAST-ETN project
Brief description of the project
SpectraCure is a world-leader in research and development of dosimetry algorithms for photodynamic therapy (PDT) of internal cancer tumours. The work is conducted in collaboration with academic groups and hospitals in Europe and North America.
The objective of the ESR project is to further develop the dosimetry algorithms that are now used in clinical trials, by retrospective analysis of the treatment outcome and improvement of the models and numerical methods in the algorithms.
The activity will include analysis of medical data, optimization, model development and software implementation, tissue optical measurements, and field work in clinics.

Planned secondments at Lund University (Sweden), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), and Tyndall Institute (Ireland).
