The conference, which will be held in beautiful Lisbon (Portugal), brings together various disciplines in the new field of image-guided precision radiotherapy for small animals. In a 2.5-day program various aspects of this developing field will be highlighted: cancer biology, radiotherapy side effects, novel radiotherapy strategies, synergy of radiation with drugs, development of novel irradiation technology, novel imaging methods, pre-clinical studies, translation strategies.
The conference aims to allow biologists, physicists, physicians and other scientists to exchange ideas on modern small animal pre-clinical radiation research. Manufacturers of modern animal irradiation and imaging equipment will actively participate in the meeting.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
If you are a scientist working in the field of precision radiotherapy or imaging with small animals, in particular for cancer, but also for other diseases, or if you use radiation injury to study certain phenomena, you should consider participating in this exciting conference to share your ideas and experience and expand your network. If you recently set up a small animal irradiation device or are considering acquiring one, you should not miss this unique opportunity. It will provide you with a wealth of useful information and facilitate the scientific exchange with other investigators in the field. If you are a physician interested in clinical translation of pre-clinical research, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity to present your ideas. Early registration is highly recommended because the number of participants is limited to 160, to stimulate discussion.
