The ACRF Image X Institute is a centre for innovation in radiation therapy and cancer imaging technologies.
We create, share and apply scientific knowledge to improve health by building new technology for cancer imaging and targeted radiation therapy.
We engage with industry, hospitals, international collaborators and universities to forge relationships that help take our projects from lab bench to patient bedside.
Record Number of Early Career Fellowships awarded.
A trio of early career research fellows from the ACRF Image X Institute at the University of Sydney will begin cutting-edge research missions to improve cancer radiation therapy this year, thanks to support from Cancer Institute NSW and the NHMRC. Dr Brendan Whelan, Dr David Waddington and Dr Paul Liu will each be tackling unique challenges associated with the Australian MRI Linac, a powerful experimental cancer radiation therapy system based at Liverpool Hospital.
