IU Health Proton Therapy Center names new medical director

Jay Douglas

Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center (formerly Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute) has named James "Jay" Douglas, M.D., as medical director. He also assumes the newly created role of deputy director of IU Cyclotron Operations, which generates the proton beam used to treat patients at the center. Douglas also is on the faculty of the IU School of Medicine. Full Story >>

Cyclotron renaming, President's Medal to emeritus professor highlight rededication ceremony

IU Integrated Science & Accelerator Technology Hall

The Indiana University Board of Trustees on Thursday (April 14) will rededicate and rename the IU Cyclotron Facility as the Integrated Science and Accelerator Technology (ISAT) Hall. ISAT houses three distinct units -- the Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM), IU Cyclotron Operations (IUCO) and the IU Health Proton Therapy Center (formerly Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute) -- that each rely in different ways on using beams of accelerated particles, including the proton beams created by the cyclotrons at ISAT Hall.

Cyclotron

Indiana University today announced a restructuring at its IU Cyclotron Facility that creates a new physics research center and moves operational responsibility for the cyclotron to the Indiana University School of Medicine. Full Story >>

70 years later, IU Cyclotron works to save lives

Cyclotron

Nuclear physics at Indiana University Bloomington has come a long way. The program was created 70 years ago by A.C.G. Mitchell, hired by former IU President Herman B Wells to initiate basic physics research in 1938. Between 1939 and 1941, faculty members and students worked in Swain Hall to build the program's centerpiece, a 90-ton "cyclotron." The Swain Hall cyclotron is gone, but IU cyclotron research is alive and well. Full Story >>
