The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people.

PSI is a pioneer in the field of proton therapy. It conducts technological and clinical research in order to optimize spot scanning proton beam therapy and to extend the spectrum of indications for proton radiotherapy. Besides research activities, PSI provides a clinical programme for patients presenting with indications that are accepted by the Swiss Health Care System for proton beam therapy. The Center for Proton Therapy collaborates closely with departments for radiotherapy at universities and Swiss cantonal hospitals.
