Congratulations to our Researcher of the Month: Patrick Tang

Don’t forget to nominate one of our colleagues for researcher of the month!

Patrick Tang

Patrick is a MSc student Technical Medicine at the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands. He won the GliMR Project Presentation Price and was rewarded a STSM during the latest GliMR Annual Meeting in February 2021.

As a graduate intern at the Dept. of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and the Dept. of Radiotherapy the goal of his project is to improve radiotherapy planning for patients with glioblastoma multiforme. With the introduction of advanced MRI techniques, brain maps providing information on cell proliferation, angiogenesis and oxygen metabolism are used to visualize microscopic tumour infiltration, a key characteristic of glioblastomas that complicates radiotherapy planning. 

“With my research we hope to take an initial step towards individualized radiotherapy to improve local tumour control or reduce late radiation-induced toxicity. In the future I hope to play an important role in bringing technology and healthcare together as a Technical Physician; it is exciting to see so many institutes working towards this goal at GliMR.” – Patrick Tang
