In nuclear medicine, radioactive material is used for the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of disease, including cancer. The demand for radiotherapeutics is expected to increase significantly over the next few decades. The aim of this project is to optimise the production of novel medical radionuclides in a research reactor.
This project seeks to develop a new method in treating cancer by coupling nuclear medicine with Creo Medical’s sophisticated medical microwave technologies. Nuclear medicine is a well-established subset of radiology that implants radioactive material into a patient for the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
A new research seminar series centred around STEM and Medicine has begun in Bangor University. The NFI's own Dr Lee Evitts, Sêr Cymru Lecturer in Nuclear Medicine delivered the second lecture of the series where he shares his exepertise in the field.
Many people are frightened of radiation, thinking of it as an invisible, man-made and deadly force, and this fear often underpins opposition to nuclear power. In fact, most radiation is natural and life on Earth wouldn’t be possible without it. Read more at https://nubu.nu
