About this Event

Course Description

Clinical and Experimental Radiobiology is a five-day course that is hosted by the University of Toronto's Department of Radiation Oncology that delves into the radiation biology in the clinical and research practices of radiation oncology.

Course Dates: April 26, 2021 to April 30, 2021, 10:00am - 6:00pm EST

Course Location: Online (Details will be sent directly to course participants)

Final exam date: Online on Friday, May 14, 2021, 9:00am - 12:00pm at your local time in Canada. Time for international students will be determined on a case-by-case basis. (Exam proctored locally - details will be sent directly to course participants and local coordinators). The exam is mandatory for students seeking course credit. Students who are taking this course for other reasons are not required to take the exam.

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 course is taught by internationally renowned faculty, including:

  • Dr. Marianne Koritzinksy, Course Director (University of Toronto)
  • Dr. Michael Joiner (Wayne State University, Detroit, MI)
  • Dr. Albert van der Kogel (University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI)
  • Dr. Alejandro Berlin (University of Toronto)
  • Dr. Kathy Han (University of Toronto)
  • Dr. Andrew Hope (University of Toronto)

  • Dr. David Shultz (University of Toronto)
  • Dr. Bradly Wouters (University of Toronto)

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 an opportunity to expand or update their knowledge on radiation biology.
