French is at the heart of cancer treatment in Europe. Not shocking, the nation is home to many specialists who oversee the treatment of cancer and spearhead research in various fields pertaining to the treatment of cancer.

One of the nation’s most iconic figures of the nation’s oncology fraternity is Dr Marc Bollet. His presence in the field has helped spur research and treatment of cancer.

Brief History

“Marc Bollet brief history”

Marc Bollet started out as a medical student at Nancy University where he developed a deep interest in studies related to cancer. This led to obtain additional degrees in MSc Biological and Medical studies along with a MSc in Biochemistry. He also obtained a diploma in medical statistics. Following his completion of the diploma in medical statistics, he went on to pursue a research in Radiation and imagery after he was awarded a scholarship a State scholarship. Thanks to his research, he was able to delve into the subject of pelvic cancers. He focused mainly on the improvement of radiotherapy of various pelvic cancers that exist today, of which prostate cancer is in the lead. This was as early as 1998.

Major Achievements

“Major Achievements”

Following the end of his studies, he was able to achieve a lot and gained global recognition. One of his major achievements is the development of the Stereotatic Radiotherapy, which he developed during his thesis when he was completing his MD studies. The technique is increasingly becoming used today owing to the numerous advantages that are associated with it. One of its major strengths is the fact that it is very precise. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most precise forms of radiation therapies that are available today. It was specifically developed for the treatment of tumours, especially the small brain tumours as well as any functional abnormalities present within the brain. Today, this technique is being used widely for the treatment of brain abnormalities. The technique is still being developed for purposes of making it more effective. Currently, its level of precision lies within 2 mm of the tumour being targeted. With more research, it is likely that the technique’s level of precision is likely to be extended to anything below a millimetre.

The seven years that followed his completion of MD studies saw him shock the world. This was after he published his thesis in 2007 in partial fulfilment of his Ph.D thesis which he obtained from Paris-Sud University. The paper contained information pertaining to breast cancer in young patients.

Contribution To Research And Training

“Contribution To Research
And Training”

As one of the experienced oncologists, Dr Bollet has championed the research in advanced topics pertaining to the treatment of cancer. In particular, he has gained global recognition owing to his deep interest in radiation oncology. It is no wonder that the French oncologist has been able to earn himself a chance to work as a fellow at reputable institutions around the world. For example, he was able to operate as a fellow at the Royal Marsden Hospital in the UK. The Netherlands Cancer Institute also called him to serve in the same position for a full year.

His research and training skills have been used to train young medical students across the oncology centres in France. Today, he continues to inspire many young medical students across France and the entire world through lectures, seminars and club conferences. Clubs to which is he affiliated are still benefiting greatly from his work as a researcher, trainer and oncologist.

Working As A Professional Oncologist

Marc Bollet has not just lived his whole life as a researcher and teacher. Rather, he has also been involved in a number of cases of cancer as a professional oncologist. He is renowned for his insurmountable contribution to the treatment of cancer using special techniques at various oncology centres in France.


“French society of
radiation oncologists”

The SFRO was an organisation that was brought on board more than a decade ago for purposes of promoting the teaching of radiation oncology in France. Ever since its inception, the organisation has grown extensively. It now features as many as 120 members from across France. The members are afforded an opportunity to learn about radiation oncology and to acquire in-depth knowledge on how to administer treatment through the use of the various techniques that exist today. Every year, two nation courses are organised to enable the members to learn some important information about cancer and how to treat it through the use of radiation oncology. All the members receive an invitation whenever new courses are introduced. The goal is to make sure that all members are at the same level in as far as knowledge is concerned. In case of new information, the members are kept up to date to ensure that they are acquainted with any advancements in the treatment of the disease.

Brief History Of The Society

“Brief History Of The Society”

The society was formed in 2002 and is thus 15 years old. Membership was and remains free to all individuals who have prospects of joining the society. The organisation works hand in hand with other organisations that are involved in the fight against cancer. From 2002, its sister organisation the SJFRO has been working with the SFRO to promote training in cancer treatment. In its nearly two decades of existence, the organisation has worked tirelessly to make sure that its members are given adequate and accurate information on cancer. The society has successfully managed to stimulate research in cancer treatment among its members. Not shocking, a number of amazing results have been registered by the society since the time it was brought on board.

Teaching Information

“Following information for
the courses”

Every year, the society invites its members following the addition of new courses. This is aimed at making sure that all the members are exposed to the same nature of information. There are many teaching courses that the society offers to its members. The teaching information and courses are taught by highly qualified professors whose credentials are backed by immense experience in the treatment of cancer using radiation oncology. All the courses that are provided by the society are directly related to cancer itself (without special reference to any type of cancer). The society has a well organised teaching structure. It features four semesters of radiation oncology, two semesters awarded to medical oncology and another two semesters awarded to radiation oncology and its related fields.

Learning Radiation Therapy

“Learning Radiation Therapy”

The organisation is directly involved in the dispensation of various courses to help medical students become fully equipped with knowledge and skills related to radiation oncology. All the individuals who sign up for membership with the society are actually full time medical doctors who have already obtained a medical studies degree. It takes around six years for medical doctors to complete their studies in France. Once they have successfully completed their studies. The study time frame at the society’s learning centres normally lasts five years. This is often referred to as the residency time.

“Radiation oncology residency”

Therefore, students who enrol for radiation oncology are said to enrol for radiation oncology residency. During the course of the five years, the society receives a wide range of courses which are taught one after another or alongside each other. The major courses that the society receives are cellular and molecular biology, pharmacology, genetics, medical imaging, cell death, immunity, pathology, stem cells, oncogenesis, epidemiology, chemotherapy and angiogenesis. There are other mandatory courses which the members are required to attend. These include radiophysics, radiation therapy and radiobiology courses among others.

From the above, it is clear that the SFRO is certainly one of the most important societies in France. Its contribution to the research, treatment of cancer patients and training of medical experts is certainly remarkable.
