One of the main research programs of the clinic within the framework of grant solutions is the use of unconventional radiation sources in the treatment of cancer and the biomodulation of radiotherapy. The Oncology Laboratory is designed as a workplace of applied research to determine the sensitivity of tumor cells to individual anticancer drugs and to investigate molecular biological factors that affect efficacy.
