Cancer is a worldwide issue, in 2012 alone, 14.1 million cases were diagnosed, 8.2 million people died and 32.5 million people were left living with cancer. Without new therapies the numbers are projected to rise significantly by 2030.

Recently Resolve Optics supplied custom designed radiation resistant lenses that form key targeting optical elements in synchrotron radiation therapy machines being supplied to help beat the cancer epidemic.
