Prof. Coen Rasch Joins Advisory Board Sensius

Sensius is proud to announce Prof.Dr. Coen Rasch as a member of its Advisory Board. Coen is a radiation oncologist and chair of the Department of Radiotherapy at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). He is also chair of the NVRO, the Dutch Society for Radiation Oncology.

Treatment of Head and Neck cancer urgently needs a potent sensitizer to boost the current therapies and manage the toxicity, as we cannot be satisfied with the outcome today. Sensius’ vision on hyperthermia creates a paradigm shift and propels it into thermotherapy, bringing it to the same level of relevance as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Their strong clinical orientation makes it usable for clinics to treat patients routinely.

His knowledge and experience is an important asset to our Advisory Board.”
