Disclosures and Potential Conflicts of Interest


The mission and vision of the Radiation Physics Laboratory (RPL) is to create, share and apply scientific knowledge to improve human health. We focus on developing and improving anatomic and physiologic cancer imaging methods and integrating these innovations into adaptive medical therapeutic systems, particularly radiation therapy. A critical step in applying our technology is the translation of our technology through clinical trials. We are involved in clinical trials where Prof Keall, RPL members and the University of Sydney may hold patents and other intellectual property and may benefit financially from the results of the trials. We also partner in clinical trials with external companies, including start-ups from our laboratory, in trials where we may benefit financially from the results of the trials. RPL members work with the University to identify and best manage these conflicts.
