Collaborative Programmes

Computational Radiotherapy Collaborations


We have three interdisciplinary computational radiotherapy research projects.

  • The research programme VoxTox , funded by Cancer Research UK
  • The Accel-RT project , funded by the STFC.
  • The the GHOST project, funded by the Wellcome Foundation.

The Cavendish-Hitachi Collaboration


The Cavendish Laboratoryhitachi view


















The University of Cambridge and Hitachi Limited started collaborative research in 1989 when the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory (HCL) was established through working with the Microelectronics Research Centre at the Cavendish Laboratory.

Research initially focused on microelectronics and resulted in the demonstration of the first single electron memory in 1993 and the first single electron logic in 1995. Collaboration subsequently extended with other research groups at the Cavendish site, including theMicroelectronics group and the Optoelectronics group, with the aim of creating new concepts of advanced electronic and optoelectronic devices.

HCL is a truly international team of researchers, and its open research environment produces a profitable collaboration upon a range of research projects.

Collaborative Programmes

The Laboratory has a number of formal collaborations with Industrial Partners, with International Organisations and with Formal Partnerships within the University.  The details of the current collaborative programmes are given below.
