内容記述
Radiation exposure elevates risk of cancer. Carcinogenesis is a process of forming cancer, which is considered to originate from a cell that harbors an important genetic change (i.e., mutation). There are many knowledge gaps, however, about the mechanism of carcinogenesis induced by radiation. Application of quantum technologies potentially has great impacts in many fields of life science including cancer research and radiation biology. We therefore aim at applying quantum technologies to facilitate research on the mechanism of radiation carcinogenesis. Among a myriad of technologies developed in QST, we put our focus on quantum beam technologies as sources of radiation for induction of cancer-initiating (‘radiation signature’) mutations, infrared laser spectrometry as novel pathological analyses (‘quantum pathology’) of tumor tissues, and two photon imaging for studying the initial stages of cancer induction (‘lineage imaging’ and ‘mutation imaging’). In the presentation, we briefly introduce our current project on radiation carcinogenesis in an animal model of breast cancer and related application of quantum technologies.
