Course Description

Clinical and Experimental Radiobiology is a five-day course that takes place in the Spring every year. The next course will take place from April 9, 2018 to April 13, 2018.

If you would like to stay informed about next year's course, please sign up here.

This program provides a comprehensive overview of radiation biology with a particular emphasis on aspects of direct relevance to the practice of radiation oncology. It addresses the molecular and cellular responses to radiation-induced damage that influence cell death in both tumors and normal tissues. Quantitation of radiation effects and the underlying biological basis for fractionation of radiotherapy and dose-response relationships in the clinic are covered in depth. The biological basis for current approaches to improve radiotherapy will be described including novel fractionation schemes, retreatment issues, targeting hypoxia, biological modifiers and combined radiotherapy/chemotherapy.

The suggested textbook for this course is Basic Clinical Radiobiology. It is strongly recommended that you read this book before attending the course.

The exam will be held after the course (TBD) in Toronto and at the local site for participants from other cities.

The course is taught by visiting faculty:

  • Dr. Michael Joiner (Wayne State University, Detroit, MI)
  • Dr. Søren Bentzen (University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD)

Target Group

The course is designed primarily to address the needs of radiation oncology residents and physics residents who are in radiation oncology departments. In addition, the course will be valuable to new researchers in radiation biology and to radiation oncology fellows or practicing oncologists who recognize a lack of basic science or want to update their knowledge.
