Conference

Symposium on Small Animal RadioTherapy

3-5 March 2013, Maastricht, the Netherlands

The symposium will bring together various disciplines in the new field of image-guided precision radiotherapy for small animals. In a full 2-day program various aspects of this developing field of research will be highlighted: cancer biology, radiotherapy side effects (acute and late), novel radiotherapy strategies for cancer and other diseases, synergy of radiation with drugs, development of novel irradiation technology, novel imaging methods, pre-clinical studies, and much more…

The symposium aims to allow biologists, physicists, physicians and other scientists to exchange ideas on modern small animal pre-clinical radiation research. It will also be a forum to identify current limitations of the technology and the science. 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, you should consider participating in this exciting symposium 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. Early registration is highly recommended because the number of participants is limited to 100, to stimulate discussion.
