Workshop 2020: Radiobiology

Since the early years of radiotherapy, Radiobiology has led to fundamental insights into radiation oncology. A large compendium of experimental data is now available constituting the scientific basis of clinical protocols employed today. In order to maintain the scientific and clinical relevance of this discipline, physicists, biologists and clinicians must overcome the challenges of the multidisciplinary work to offer the best of each scientific knowledge to unravel the mechanisms of the tumor and normal tissue radiation response. A lot has been already done but a lot more to discover and understand.

This two-day workshop will explore the latest advances and challenges of experimental radiobiology and will allow to foster and initiate collaborations among the participants. Presentations will navigate from mathematical models of radiation response, to current clinical challenges going through in vitro methods, animal models, beam simulation, dosimetry and, radiation dose computation, among others.
