RESEARCHER UPDATE NIGHT 

January 26, 2023 @ 7 p.m.

Proton Therapy for Sarcomas

Dr. Stephanie Schaub is an expert in the treatment of adult and pediatric sarcomas at the Fred Hutch Cancer Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's Hospital. Proton Therapy is a specialized type of radiation therapy that can allow for the precise treatment of a tumor while allowing for reduced radiation dose to normal healthy tissues in the body. Dr. Schaub will walk you through how she evaluates each patient in her consideration of all different types of advanced radiotherapy treatment "tools" to decide what might be best for treatment for each patient and highlight exciting data and examples of the use of proton therapy for patients with Sarcomas.
