 Project objective

Cancer is a global problem with 14.1 million new cases occurring annually and an expected increase of 68% by 2030. Ensuring effective and safe treatment remains a significant challenge for healthcare organisations. Studies have shown proton therapy to be effective in treating many types of tumours, including tumours of the prostate, brain, head and neck, central nervous system, lung, and gastrointestinal system as well as cancers that cannot be removed completely by surgery. Proton therapy is the most advanced type of external-beam radiation therapy that uses protons at high energy to destroy cancer cells. Proton therapy can be used alone or combined with other treatments e.g. radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, and/or immunotherapy. Proton therapy is routinely used for cancer treatment however it is limited by the sheer size and expense of the systems. There are currently only 66 operational proton therapy facilities in the world, addressing only 3-5% of clinical demand. HIL has developed an ultra-compact, high-performance system for Proton Therapy. HIL’s advanced particle accelerator and beamline technologies aim to make PT widely accessible by offering highly cost-effective single-room solutions. During the innovation project, HIL intends to scale-up the performance of the laser proton accelerator, customise the design of the delivery system, and clinically validate the laser proton performance. The project will also enable crucial commercial activities including implementation of IP strategy, communication strategy and scouting potential customers.
