Maastro is an internationally renowned center for radiotherapy that focusses on the connection between patientcare, education and effective scientific research.
For radiotherapy, Maastro is one of the leaders in biological and translational research. Successes in the lab or physics are translated as quickly as possible to the clinic and are often applied in clinical trials for the first time worldwide. This enables Maastro to improve the concept of individualized radiotherapy.
Scientific research is organized in four (virtual) divisions:
- The division Lab focusses on radiation biology
- Clinical trials are managed by the division Clinical Research
- The more technical focus in improving radiotherapy, for instance in the field of imaging, is covered by Physics Research
- The division Data Science aims on building models and decision support systems to help physicians and patients to choose the best treatment.
In each division clinicians and researchers work closely together to translate research results as soon as possible into improved patient care.
