Revolutionary Cancer Research by Stanford Radiation Oncology & SLAC

March 20, 2019

Dr. Erinn Rankin and Dr. Bill Loo are pioneering the next generation of radiation oncology technology called PHASER. This new technology is a collaboration between the Stanford Radiation Oncology and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. PHASER is designed to provide ultra fast radiation therapy while reducing normal tissue toxicity, lowering unwanted side effects and increasing the effectiveness of targeting affected cancer areas. Through the collaboration with SLAC, radiation is delivered 300 times more quickly than previously possible, all in less than a second. Patient treatment results using PHASER have been extremely promising.

Over the years, My Blue Dots has supported the research of Dr. Erinn Rankin. Her team of researchers have several projects which need financial support including PHASER. These project are “High Risk, High Reward.” PHASER will revolutionize how radiation is accessed worldwide.
