Medical Physics and Data Analytics Cluster

The Medical Physics and Data Analytics Cluster

The Medical Physics and Data Analytics Cluster (MP DAC) combines the expertise of UBC Okanagan Statisticians and Medical Physicists with BC Cancer Agency Centre for the Southern Interior and Interior Health Authority Medical Physicists to apply novel approaches to the investigation of radiation therapy response and cancer imaging, with the goal of improving cancer treatment delivery for the effect of more cures.
