Colorado Institutions Vying to Build First Carbon Ion Center in the U.S.
The University of Colorado and Colorado State University are vying to become the first institution to build a carbon-ion radiotherapy research and treatment facility in the U.S. The treatment modality is available in Europe and Japan.
Officials at the two universities are exploring the feasibility of building a $300 million research and treatment facility at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.
Their first step is to conduct a $200,000 feasibility study for the project.
