MRC Investigator & Group Leader - FLASH Radiation
FLASH radiation is a novel radiotherapy technique that show great potential in improving cancer treatment. However, very little is known about the biological mechanisms behind the highly beneficial FLASH effect. The research group aims to identify these mechanisms, explain the effect, and to find the optimal way of implementing the technique in clinical practice.
Kristoffer is a Medical physicist from Helsingborg, Sweden, and holds a M.Sc. (2009) and a Ph.D. (2014) in Medical Radiation Physics from Lund University, Sweden. Kristoffer enjoyed a Post-doc period (2014-2017) working on FLASH radiation at CHUV, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Lately, he has worked as a clinical medical physicist (2017-2019) and started his own research group in FLASH radiotherapy (2017-) at Skåne University Hospital. Recently, Kristoffer accepted the position as Group leader of the newly created research group "Physics and Biology of FLASH Radiation" in the Department of Oncology.
