Shine A Light: The History, Mystery, and Opportunity of GRID Therapy

If you work in radiation oncology, the story of spatially-fractionated GRID therapy is perhaps the best story you’ve never heard.

It is a story of history and science, of mystery and opportunity. But perhaps most of all, it is a story of family. A son and his father, yes, but also of a larger family: the family of the people we work with, and learn from, and sometimes, teach. And a family larger still, the family of people we ultimately work for: those in need of help, those in need of hope, those who in times of darkness just need someone to shine a light.

We hope you take the time to enjoy this documentary and share it with your friends and colleagues. And we hope that, like us, you are inspired.
