A new Weapon to fight cancer
Belgian researcher Yves Jongen has developed a powerful new weapon to combat cancer. With his smaller and more affordable version of a proton-generating device, called the ‘cyclotron', the engineer has paved the way for a therapy that not only eradicates tumors more efficiently than conventional radiation therapy but also reduces the risks that radiation poses to patients.

His invention has secured him a nomination for the European Inventors Award 2013, in the category Lifetime Achievement.

More than 100 types of cancer, millions of deaths annually, over 13 million new cases worldwide in 2012 – the figures are devastating. The good news is: the knowledge and means to fight the deadly disease have increased as well.
