The December 2012 podcast features an interview with Ross Berbeco, lead author of the paper entitled DNA Damage Enhancement from Gold Nanoparticles for Clinical MV Photon Beams appearing in the December 2012 issue of Radiation Research. The interview is hosted by Marjan Boerma and covers the key aspects of Dr Berbeco's work, and that of his co-authors, touching on the value of using gold in the context of MV x ray-based therapies, as well as photon beams of lower energies, and on the in vivo problematic of these types of targeted approaches.
