UW Medical Cyclotron Facility:

The University of Washington Medical Cyclotron Facility is a one-of-a-kind cancer treatment and research facility. At its center is the world’s only hospital-based, 50 MeV multi-particle, variable energy cyclotron capable of delivering fast neutron therapy and supporting innovative cancer research programs.

The facility, which is housed in the University of Washington Medical Center and run by the Department of Radiation Oncology, was built in the early 80s as part of a National Cancer Institute grant that installed neutron therapy equipment in four teaching hospitals around the country. Today, the UWMCF is the only cyclotron still in operation from that original NCI grant, with a full-time dedicated staff of engineers and physicists committed to the ongoing study of high linear energy transfer (LET) radiation therapy.

The UWMCF was recently certified as a silver-level lab as part of UW’s Green Lab Certification Program, which recognizes laboratories that operate sustainably in the areas of energy usage, communication materials, waste, chemical usage, water usage and more.
