Join us July 31-August 1, 2014, at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus for the cancer symposium "Photon, Proton, and Carbon Ion Radiotherapy: Advances in Basic, Translational, and Clinical Research." The symposium is presented jointly by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), CSU's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, the University of Colorado Cancer Center, University of Colorado - Department of Radiation Oncology, the CSU Flint Animal Cancer Center, and University of Colorado Health.
The majority of cancer patients receive radiation as part of their treatment, either with traditional photon or proton radiotherapy, or with carbon ion radiotherapy pioneered by the Japan National Institute of Radiological Sciences. Radiotherapy is used to treat some of the deadliest cancers known to humankind, such as head and neck cancers; bone and soft tissue tumors; and lung, prostate, rectal, and pancreatic cancers.
Oncologists, cancer researchers, educators, and other interested parties should attend to learn about the latest advances in basic and translational research, medical physics, and clinical practice related to photon, proton, and carbon ion radiotherapy.
