The "Tumour targeting, Imaging, radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its fourteenth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 30th of September to 3rd of October 2020 in Le Bono, West of France.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers.
The 14th international workshop edition entitled "Adaptation of the tumour and its ecosystem to radiotherapies: Mechanisms, imaging and therapeutic approaches " will confront the points of view and problems of the various disciplines, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, Computer science, working for the development of molecular and external beam radiotherapies in Oncology.
This workshop will focus on the latest advances in molecular and external beam radiotherapies through a better understanding of adaptation of the tumour and its microenvironment. Progress of biological knowledge of tumour escape, heterogeneity and resistance allow others various disciplines to perform treatment using radionuclides or radiation. These aspects will be developed, through the following sessions:
Session 1: Tumour adaptation to radiotherapies: biological aspects
Session 2: Tumour adaptation to radiotherapies: contribution of imaging
Session 3: Innovative radiation therapeutic strategies
Session 4: Learning and data driven techniques
Session 5: Futures challenges with industrial point of view and focus on European policy in Oncology
To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses. Candidates must submit an abstract and must be selected as speaker in one of the scientific sessions to benefit from these awards. Selected candidates will be notified by June 26th 2020.
Location:This event will take place in the "Manoir de Kerdréan" in Le Bono, in the Gulf of Morbihan, at about two hours from Nantes in West of France.
