Centre for the Clinical Applications of Particles

The Centre for the Clinical Application of Particles (CCAP) is an interdisciplinary collaboration of staff from the Faculty of Medicine, the Imperial Academic Health Science Centre, the Department of Physics, the Imperial CRUK Cancer Centre, the Institute of Cancer Research, the John Adams Institute and the Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology. The principal objectives of the CCAP are to deliver a broad programme of measurement of the radiobiological effect of particle beams and systematic studies of radiobiological mechanisms; develop novel, compact, laser-driven accelerator systems for clinical applications; and develop novel diagnostic, imaging, data-processing, and machine-learning techniques.
