Young Lee is always looking for new and better ways to deliver radiation treatments to patients. ????????? Young is medical physicist leading Sunnybrook’s central nervous system medical physics team, and is heavily involved in planning and treating patients on the Gamma Knife Icon. The Gamma Knife Icon is a radiation technology that allows us to offer precision radiation to a broader group of patients – for example, to people with as many as 30 brain tumours. ????????? “I didn’t have many women mentors to look up to and engage with when I was younger,” says Young. “The women in medical physics now are trying to create an environment of mentorship here for the next generation.” #WomenInSTEM
