NIRO - Network in Radiation Oncology

CC: Per Marius Didriksen, OUS.

Radiotherapy is together with surgery and chemotherapy the main curative treatment modality for cancer, and is also an important palliative treatment.

In this network, we aim to gather radiotherapy researchers at OUH, Sørlandet and Innlandet Hospitals to strengthen research and clinical competence and thereby facilitate implementation of novel, improved radiotherapy techniques and strategies.
