Academic Clinical Oncology and Radiobiology Research Network (ACORRN): Establishing a coordinated network of groups and individuals who carry out Radiotherapy and Radiobiology Research in the UK

  • K. Love (a1), G. Heap (a2) and W. Russell (a2)

Abstract

The Academic Clinical Oncology and Radiobiology Research Network (ACORRN) was launched in 2005 by the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) to revitalise radiotherapy (RTX) and radiobiology (RB) research in the UK [Price P. Clin Oncol 2005; 17:299–304]. The network was established in response to the sharp decline over the past 10 years in the number of clinical academics and radiation biologists. The decline had left the UK's radiotherapy and RB communities with insufficient infrastructure and capacity, despite radiotherapy experiencing one of the most rapid advances in technology and computerisation of any field in medicine.
