Tomsk Polytechnic to help develop Nuclear Medicine Center in Siberia

1 Sep '15
Researchers from the Tomsk Polytechnic University are taking part in a project aimed at creating a Nuclear Medicine Center in Tomsk, in Siberia, the TPU website announced.

A special Working Group is being formed in the region to help further the effort. In the Group, the TPU scientists will join representatives of the local medical community.

The Tomsk project is expected to become third in a growing network of federal nuclear medicine centers after one in Dimitrovgrad, in the Ulyanovsk region in the mid-Volga area, and in Obninsk outside Kaluga in Central Russia.

We see as a priority the development of intraoperative radiation therapy based on betatrons [cyclic particle acceleratorsEditors note] and also neutron therapy, including neutron capture therapy [a noninvasive cancer treatment method enabled through reactions between radio sensitive drugs and neutronsEditors note], said Alexander Vagner, the head of TPUs applied physics chair and a member of the Working Group.

According to the Tomsk regional authorities, the local Nuclear Medicine Center will be a private-public partnership (PPP).
