Professor Dr Anthony Lomax

Professor Dr Antony Lomax obtained his MSc and PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Aberdeen. After working for two years in the National Health Service, he moved to Switzerland to work in the Center for Proton Therapy at the Paul Scherrer Institute where he became head of Medical Physics in 2001. In 2007, he was made Titular Professor in the Physics Department at ETH. He is a regular member of the scientific committees for ASTRO, ESTRO, AAPM and the ICCR and since 2015 is the physics co-chair of the PTCOG Scientific Program Sub-committee. He is the author or co-author of over 230 peer reviewed papers, 13 book chapters and more than 500 invited and proffered conference presentations. His main research interests lie in the development of intensity modulated proton therapy, problems of robustness and uncertainty in treatment delivery and effects of organ motion for dynamic radiotherapy.
