About the Doctor / Professional

Professor Dr. Raimon Miralbell is the Director of the Radiotherapy Oncology Service of the Teknon Oncology Institute, Chief of the Radio-oncology Services for the University Hospitals of Geneva in Switzerland and Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva.

He has a Medical Doctor’s degree from the University of Geneva. Since 1997 he has studied at renowned European and North American Centers, of which worth mentioning is the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton-Surrey in the United Kingdom and the City of Hope National Medical Centre in Duarte, California, in the United States. A Doctor and researcher for the proton therapy project from 1987 to 1989 at the Massachusetts General Hospital and for the Harvard Cyclotron Laboratory at Harvard University, Cambridge in Boston, Massachusetts, his main research areas are prostate cancer, breast cancer, high precision radiotherapy techniques and radio-biological mathematical models on the response of cancer to radiation. He is a member and founder of the European Scientific Institute (ESI) tied to the Centre Européen de Recherche Nucléarie, CERN (European Organization for cancer research and treatment) where he develops and manages training programs and new radiotherapy technology research projects and he has been the President of the Swiss Proton Users Group. He has also been invited as a speaker at numerous national and international meetings. 

His main expertise and research domains in the field of radiation oncology are: 

  • Imaging for radiotherapy treatment planning of breast and prostate cancer
  • Treatment precision optimization through image guided radiotherapy
  • Biomathematical modeling of prostate cancer response to irradiation and fractionation sensitivity: ultra-hypofractionation as a dose escalation method.
  • Biomathematical modeling for salvage radiotherapy after post-irradiation local failure for prostate cancer
  • Stereotactic beam radiotherapy for prostate, gynecologic, ocular/orbital, and oligometastatic tumors
  • Proton therapy
