Polish and Iranian researchers plan to work together in the field of radiotherapy. The deal was sealed by a letter of intent signed Oct. 1 at the Ministry of the Economy in Warsaw by Iranian Deputy Health Minister Prof. Mustafa Ghanei and Prof. Grzegorz Wrochna, director of the Institute for Nuclear Studies in ¦wierk near Warsaw.

The third signatory to the letter of intent was Prof. Sayed Aghamiri, president of the Persian Gulf Biotechnology Park, an institution that is expected to play a key role in the planned Polish-Iranian projects.

The agreement provides for upgrading the level of maintenance of Polish medical accelerators installed in Iran; drawing up contracts for new deliveries, including deliveries of the latest generation of accelerators; training of Iranian personnel and the exchange of doctoral students; the development by the Polish institute of a range of interdisciplinary studies for Iranian specialists; the development of organizational and technical infrastructure in Iran to support the production, sale and maintenance of Polish accelerators on the Iranian market; and making efforts to establish in Iran a regional excellence and training center in the field of radiotherapy. The letter of intent also provides for extensive technical cooperation and joint research.

The two countries plan to ask the International Atomic Energy Agency to make the project part of its technical cooperation agenda. The Polish institute works with the IAEA as part of the Program of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) and is an active member of the Advisory Group on Increasing Access to Radiotherapy Technologies (AGART).

“The institute’s involvement in international programs has taught us how to collaborate with researchers representing different countries and different cultures in order to achieve common goals,” said the Institute for Nuclear Studies’ Wrochna. “One such goal is certainly the fight with cancer, which claims millions of lives every year. Acting together, we will certainly achieve more than by going it alone.”
