December 16, 2014 | DOSEO platform inaugurated

The DOSEO radiotherapy and medical imaging technology platform was inaugurated on December 16, 2014. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was officiated by French Secretary of State for Research and Higher Education Geneviève Fioraso and CEA Chief Administrator Bernard Bigot and was attended by National Cancer Institute (INCA) President Dr. Agnès Buzyn and National Metrology and Testing Laboratory (LNE) Director Jean-Luc Laurent.

Located on the future Paris-Saclay University campus and founded by the CEA, LNE, and INCA, Doseo will leverage partnerships with manufacturers, scientists, and clinicians to optimize and test new radiotherapy and medical imaging technologies while reducing the risks to patients and practitioners. Cancer treatment will be one of the main areas that stands to benefit from Doseo’s research.

The Doseo platform, unlike any other facility in Europe, offers an innovation-driven collaborative R&D and training environment open to all partners, whether they are from industry, academia, or medicine. The resources available include a full battery of radiotherapy and medical imaging equipment such as accelerators, a brachytherapy unit, measuring instruments, a scanner, and an HPC cluster, plus the know-how required to get the most out of these resources.

Inauguration Plateforme DOSEODoseo is part of the second phase (2009-2013) of the French government’s cancer policy and is certified by the Medicen Paris Région cluster. The platform is financed by the CEA, INCA, LNE, the Essonne General Council, the Île-de-France Regional Council, the ERDF, the Paris-Saclay University Campus Plan, and the French Single Interministerial Fund (funds administered by the French Directorate General for Enterprise).
