Mischa Hoogeman, Ph.D. is head of medical physics at Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, Head of Medical Physics & Informatics of the Holland Proton Therapy Center as well as professor at the Erasmus University Rotterdam on High-Precision and Adaptive Radiotherapy and at the Delft University of Technology.
The overarching aim of his research is to widen the therapeutic window by the development, implementation and evaluation of high-precision radiotherapy techniques. He leads the research group that developed and implemented a novel plan-of-the-day technique to accurately irradiate the highly- deformable target volume of cervical cancer patients.
Current research aims to further improve this technique, translate it to Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy, and to clinically evaluate the benefit in terms of reduction in side effects and improved quality of life.
With the introduction of proton therapy in the Netherlands, the focus of research has shifted to proton therapy. Research in this area includes developing online-adaptive proton therapy by near-real-time daily re-optimization of the treatment plan, quantifying the uncertainties during the delivery of proton therapy that may impair the theoretical benefit, and developing methods to account for those by designing robust treatment plans.
Raphaël Moeckli completed his MSc degree at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). He is certified Swiss medical physicists since 1999, head of the radiation therapy group in Institute of Radiation Physics and head physicist in the Radio-Oncology Department at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV), Lausanne, Switzerland.
As « Maître d’Enseignement et de Recherche » and Privat Docent, both in Lausanne University. His main fields of research are TomoTherapy®, multicriteria optimisation and FLASH therapy.
He is and has been director and expert for various national and international PhD thesis juries. He has published more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journal.
As past president of the Swiss Society of Radiobiology and Medical Physics he has been active in different working groups having issued Swiss recommendations about good practice in radiation therapy.
He has been member of different scientific committees of ESTRO as well as other Swiss and international meetings.
