Meet Jacinta Yap, a particle accelerator scientist working on proton beam therapy!

Jacinta Yap is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow in the QUASAR group of theĀ University of Liverpool, headed by Professor Carsten Welsch, and is based at theĀ Cockcroft Institute, UK. She is also part of the Optimising Medical Accelerator (OMA) training network. She uses her expertise in accelerator science to maximize the healthcare benefits from proton beam therapy, a new type of cancer treatment that is more efficient than current radiotherapy techniques.
