Yuri Simeonov honored with the
2019 Dietrich Harder Master’s Thesis Award
Yuri Simeonov was awarded the 2019 “Dietrich Harder Master’s Thesis Award” at the 50th annual meeting of the German Society for Medical Physics (DGMP)
in Stuttgart on 20 September, for his outstanding thesis in the field of medical radiation physics.
In his thesis titled “3D range-modulator for scanned particle therapy: development, Monte Carlo simulations and experimental evaluation”, Mr. Simeonov describes the design, development and manufacturing of a 3D range-modulator for scanned particle therapy and investigates its potential for clinical use.
The new modulator allows to obtain a highly conformal dose distribution in the target volume using one energy, thus reducing treatment time significantly.
Yuri Simeonov, a graduate research assistant in the Department of Life Science Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Mittelhessen in Gießen, is currently working towards a PhD degree.
We congratulate Yuri Simeonov on his scientific achievement and wish him all the best and every success in his future career.
