Personalized and powerful: UK to lead next-generation radiotherapy research


The UK will be transformed into a global hub for radiotherapy research, pioneering the use of the latest techniques such as FLASH radiotherapy and artificial intelligence, with a new £56 million* research network announced by Cancer Research UK today (Monday). The network, Cancer Research UK RadNet, is the charity's largest ever investment in radiotherapy research and will accelerate the development of advanced radiotherapy techniques, challenging the boundaries of this mainstay treatment through world-first exploratory projects. It will unite seven centres of excellence across the country**: the Universities of Cambridge, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Oxford, the Cancer Research UK City of London Centre (a partnership between UCL, Queen Mary University of London, King's College London the Francis Crick Institute) and The Institute of Cancer Research, London in partnership with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. Michelle Mitchell, chief executive of Cancer Research UK, said: "Radiotherapy is a cornerstone of cancer medicine, with around 3 in 10 patients receiving it as part of their primary treatment. The launch of our network marks a new era of radiotherapy research in the UK. Scientists will combine advances in our understanding of cancer biology with cutting-edge technology to make this treatment more precise and effective than ever before".

The Differences Between Real-Time and Agile Market Research – RW Connect


Real-time research insights are becoming something quite paramount to understand for both marketers and market researchers. The future involving machine learning, automation, and artificial intelligence will most certainly include more real-time data analytics. Some might even try and say real-time data will become the new agile market research approach. But before falling head-over-heels for it, we must first uncover what really entails real-time research and determine how it fits with current research methodologies. When we're talking about real-time research, it's not the same thing as real-time results--data depicted through data visualization techniques as it's collected in real time--though it can be.

'Pokémon Go' Research Tasks Let Players Complete Quests, Catch Mew

International Business Times

The hype surrounding "Pokémon Go" may have died down significantly since it first arrived back in 2016, but that's not stopping developer Niantic from adding new elements to the AR mobile game. Niantic has announced that it is adding quests called Research, which is also designed to help players catch the mythical Pokémon Mew. "There are two different types of research you can contribute to: Field Research and Special Research," Niantic said in a blog post. "Gather Field Research tasks by spinning nearby PokéStops, which will give you objectives that include discovering and catching certain Pokémon or engaging with battles, among other things. Special Research may be requested by Professor Willow himself, and will take you on a journey to make important discoveries!"
