"As part of the Fête de la science, the Jean-Marot media library is offering a meeting on Saturday afternoon, highlighting research carried out in scientific institutions. Juliette Thariat and Jean Colin, professors at the University of Caen and researchers at the corpuscular physics laboratory, will discuss an innovative technique for fighting cancer called hadrontherapy. "Hadrontherapy is a new way of treating cancerous tumors, using beams of ionizing particles," explain the two researchers ..."
"As part of their studies, Augute-Chevalier high school students, enrolled in the 1st S class, met Thursday morning with Grégory Lehaut, a research fellow at the laboratory of corpuscular physics at the University of Caen. This was an opportunity for the researcher to discuss the energy sources currently available, such as primary energy. During this meeting, Christelle Kerjoze, a physics teacher, and a few high school students did not hesitate to ask a few questions: "What effects on the environment? What solutions are possible in the future? What use for our consumer society? » A striking encounter for many high school students faced with this current problem."
"A new master's degree in nuclear physics. In October, the University of Caen will offer a new degree, the Erasmus Mundus NuPhys master's degree. The close cooperation of the Caen Corpuscular Physics Laboratory with the Ganil and Archade, international reference centers in fundamental and applied nuclear physics, allows Nuphys students to be directly involved in research centers through numerous internships and projects. They will thus be able to develop a career in research or research and development engineering".
