Newport, May 2019

The main Spring Meeting of 2019 (following the visit to Myanmar in January) was held in Newport, at the new Rutherford Centre where the first patient to recieve high energy proton therapy in the UK had been treated less than a year earlier. A fascinating series of talks on the physics and biology of proton treatment was given, followed by a guided tour of the Centre’s state-of-th-art facilities. Full report to follow.
