School of Physics

Medical Physics Research Group

The Medical Physics Research Group conducts research into radiobiology, radiation safety, clinical medicine and health technologies, and provides teaching in biophysics, nuclear physics, radiation health and medical physics.

In addition to the key researchers, this group comprises Medical Physics students undertaking PhDs and the Master of Physics: Medical Physics program. Our Medical Physics program was first offered in 2011 and has provisional accreditation from the Australasian College of Physical Scientists & Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM). Enquiries about the course can be directed to Mike House.

Active areas of research include:
  • Basic research into radiobiology using computational approaches.
  • Research in clinical medicine and health technologies.
  • Synthesis of new radionuclides for nuclear medicine.
  • Calibration of radiotherapy equipment.
  • Radiation safety and shielding.

We also have particular expertise in magnetic resonance research, which complements the usual medical physics study of radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and radiology.

Prospective researchers, including students, are welcome to contact the key researchers in their area of interest.  For those considering relocation, here are highlights about the University and living in Perth
