Varian in Russian Federation
More than 50 Varian medical linear accelerators are installed in Russian cancer clinics and the company currently supplies approximately 20 new treatment systems each year to radiotherapy departments in the country. The company operates an office in Moscow employing 24 people and Varian intends to expand geographical coverage across the Russian Federation in the near future.
"We want to build on our great track record in this vast country and demonstrate our commitment to enabling more cancer patients in Russia to gain access to the most modern cancer treatments available," says Sergey Popov, Varian's country director. "Working more closely with local suppliers and establishing local R&D collaborations are the next logical steps in helping to achieve this. We are extremely excited about being selected by the prestigious Skolkovo and Rusnano Foundations to take part in this first such radiotherapy supplier conference."
