RefleXion Medical

We are fundamentally altering the cancer treatment landscape by creating a modality that uses the unique biology of each tumor as a means to destroy it. Our ground-breaking approach marries positron emission tomography (PET) – the gold standard for visualizing cancer – with radiotherapy – one of the most effective ways to treat cancer. This combination, biology guiding radiotherapy (BgRT), turns cancer on itself, and finally enables radiotherapy for all stages of cancer, including metastatic disease. Biology guiding radiotherapy offers hope for millions of patients who today, have limited treatment options.

At the center of our bold vision, are passionate, committed team members who align with our culture:

  • Bold. We aren’t here to fit in and provide yet another radiotherapy solution; we’re here to change the game.
  • Confident. We don’t shy away from the challenge of implementing a breakthrough in cancer care – we tackle it head on from all dimensions.
  • Heart. Fueled by our own experiences with cancer, this is personal. It’s driven us to develop solutions that have, until now, seemed impossible.
  • Challengers of convention. We don’t let today’s technology be a barrier. We dream big and innovate to make our dreams a reality.
