Overview

This module will be delivered by RMIT University. The purpose of this module is to review principles of radiobiology in relation to advanced applications of radiation therapy. By the end of this module you will be able to explain the key factors that contribute to DNA damage and cell death. You will also be able to discuss the main components of cell survival curves and their role in treatment fractionation. You will be able to describe the 5Rs of radiobiology and their influence over clinical decision making.

Course content

You will be able to synthesise the principles of radiobiology as they relate to advanced radiation therapy techniques with fractionation and biological modelling. This module will enable you to identify the currents trends in translational research in radiation therapy relating to radiobiology and discuss the future trends for technology and research.
