Title: Biophysical modeling for innovative therapy

One of the challenge of external radiotherapy is to focus the dose effects in cancer cells while limiting it to healthy cells around. Among the possible techniques, radiosensitizers aim to emphasis the destructive effect of the dose inside the tumor. Made of high-Z elements (gold, gadolinium ..), nanoparticles (NPs) have experimentally shown to be part of this category (1). When injected in the cancer, NPs increase the radiation exposure efficiency.
