Precision X-ray Enables Precise Research at Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer and the School of Medicine
X-RAD 320 Represents Significant Benefit for Research at Flinders University
The Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer and the School of Medicine are among the top universities in the world conducting cancer research. The university recently installed an X-RAD 320 to assist researchers with breakthroughs in preclinical cancer research and developments. Below is an article that the university recently published in the Research Pulse, an initiative of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Flinders University.
Precision X-rays enable precise research
Funding for the machine ($320,000) has been won from a number of sources, including the Ramaciotti Foundation, Flinders Medical Centre Foundation, and Beat Cancer Project and Faculty of Health Sciences Infrastructure grants. Professor Pam Sykes, the driving force behind this acquisition and a Strategic Professor in the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer, says “The research which is now possible with this X-ray machine has the potential to change cancer treatment regimens, reduce side effects, and improve quality of life”.
The machine will be housed in the Flinders University School of Medicine Animal Facility and will be available for use by all researchers from April 2013.
