Presented by Michele Kim, PhD, DABR
University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine

Overview of the history of FLASH and where we are today on FLASH research. Specific experience commissioning a proton FLASH research beam line and challenges associated with FLASH research and clinical translation.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Describe the FLASH effect and what it entails
  2. Discuss FLASH capable beam modalities and relevant machines
  3. Illustrate for careful experimental design and safe clinical translation
