Physics for Everyone: Neutron Therapy Facility Feb. 2

Physicists at Fermilab primarily use accelerators to speed up and smash together particles, but these machines have other uses. Learn more about how scientists at Fermilab use accelerators to help treat cancer at the Neutron Therapy Facility on site during the next Physics for Everyone lecture.

Join Fermilab at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2, to learn more about how the laboratory uses accelerators to target some cancerous tumors. In his lecture, Fermilab physicist Tom Kroc will explain how neutron therapy works, what cancers it can treat and how it differs from other cancer therapies.

The lecture will take place in Ramsey Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public. No registration is required. There will be time for questions and answers. The lecture is part of a non-technical series about Fermilab science and culture.
