Dr Carol Box
Dr Carol Box
Senior Scientific Officer

Working in the Centre for Cancer Imaging (CCI), I facilitate biological experiments for scientists (usually with a non-biological background) who are developing imaging biomarkers to monitor treatment response. Particular interests include tumour hypoxia and molecular mechanisms of therapy resistance. As the Deputy CCI Lab Manager I also contribute to the efficient operation of the CCI’s research facilities.

Alex Dunlop
Alex Dunlop
Radiotherapy Physicist

I work jointly at the Royal Marsden Hospital and the ICR as a radiotherapy physicist with an interest in adaptive radiotherapy techniques. I have worked on the clinical implementation of the Elekta Unity MR-linac at the RMH with a focus on adaptive re-planning strategies and workflows.

Edmund Goodwin
PhD Student

I am a Clinical Scientist in the MR Linac Group at the Royal Marsden Hospital. I am currently undertaking a PhD investigating dose reconstruction methods for dynamic tumour tracked and online adapted treatments on the MR Linac.

Postdoctoral Training Fellow +44 20 3437 6813

I am a Postdoctoral Training Fellow working on distortion-less diffusion-weighted MRI for the Unity MR-Linac system. Another research interest to me is characterization of intravoxel incoherent motion with tailored diffusion-weighting gradient profiles. To achieve this, I use MR pulse programming, which I learned during my PhD on MR Neurography.

Dr Simeon Nill

Dr Simeon Nill, is a clinical scientist who specialises in ways of targeting radiotherapy that take into account tumour movement.
