Revolutionising the way we treat cancer
We develop a safe and cost effective approach to radiation therapy
to enhance therapeutic efficacy and treatment accessibility
providing improved outcomes and a better quality of life for patients.
of all cancer patients receive radiotherapy as part of their treatment plan
Despite huge advancements in treatment planning and dose delivery, a major challenge remains:
Healthy tissues around the treated area absorb part of the radiation, causing side effects.
Radiation oncologists must often decide between delivering a large enough dose to control the tumour and sparing nearby organs from damage. This may lead to poor clinical outcomes and suboptimal survival rates.
We are committed to delivering treatment only where needed
Improved therapy efficacy and patient outcomes
Lower costs for
hospitals and payers
A fraction of the cost relative to particle therapy
Quicker and safer
More accurate radiotherapy delivery with lower treatment times
Compact, user-friendly machinery
Compatible with existing hospital infrastructures
Where are we now?
Very high energy electron beams in the ideal energy range for radiotherapy are routinely produced in our facility
Market pre-validation studies show good acceptance from medical community; First discussions with potential commercial partner
“An enabling technology that will provide a paradigm shift in the medical radiotherapy market”
Our laser–plasma accelerator technology will enable routine delivery of highly energetic electrons in the ideal energy range required for oncologic radiotherapy. By bringing together experts in laser and accelerator science, we will develop a compact, simple, and safe basis for next generation cancer treatment.
eBeam4Therapy is a 3-year project funded by the European Union.
The project aims to to demonstrate the feasibility of laser-plasma technology in the radiotherapy application while paving the way for commercialisation and market entry.
One of the world’s leading basic research institutions, Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) comprises 250 experimental and theoretical research groups across five faculties—Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Physics. Insights that emerge from its labs help provide a fundamental understanding of the human body and the universe, and lead to advances in medicine, technology, and the environment.
