Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Katia Parodi
Professor of Experimental Physics – Medical Physics
Katia Parodi is head of the newly established chair of medical physics at LMU Munich. In the medium term, she will set up a new degree program for medical physics at LMU Munich. Professor Parodi will bring her expertise in image-guided radiotherapy - in the development of which she has played an important role - and her experience in ion therapy, gained at the Deutsche Krebsforschungszentrum in Heidelberg and at GSI in Darmstadt, to build a new biomedical beamline at MAP/CALA. Her main research will focus on image-guided radiotherapy aided by Monte Carlo simulations for the precise targeting of tumors while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue.
