BioPhysicsX meeting; 08Jun23; 08:00

Summary of actions:

  • IMcN: Seek CSC seminar on LhARA intiative
  • KL: Seek Amato om slides
  • KL: Post set of presentations on wiki for reference and pilferring
  • KL: Solicit or find slides from Yolanda
  • CJ, KL, PP: Liaise to produce initial slide deck by 14Jun23
  • IMcN: If there is a Div. of Cancer rep attending White City on 23Jun, make contact with
  • KL: Seek meeting to brief Sandrine Heutz for KL and IMcN
  • KL: (Added) Ask Sophie for slide template, if there is one

Notes

Present: IMcN, PP, CJ, KL.

  1. Notes and actions: All
    Actions:
    • CJ, KL, PP to meet in a fortnight -- DONE
    • Seek two meetings with IMcN; one in a month and one just before his presentation on the 26Jun23 -- Done
    • IMcN: Consider seminar at CSC -- Stands
  1. BioPhysicsX two-pager: CJ, All
    Present draft
    Points outstanding from last meeting:
    • Solicit input from:
      • Expert communicators.
      • European technology network, and, in consultation with IMcN, colleagues in FOM at Imperial.
    • Different versions need to be prepared for, e.g.:
      • "Public"/lay audience;
      • Influences/decision makers;
      • Funding agency personnel/Institute (Imperial, Oxford) leads
    We agreed:
    • Update to take into account PP comments;
    • Proceed to take advice on current draft as above;
    • Proceed to develop different versions for various audiences as above;
    • Add "pictures" where appropriate and add a timeline.
  1. Support for IMcN 10 min presentation to CRUK on 26Jun23: CJ, All
    First draft of slides
    Key underlying messages, to help focus discussion:
    • improving clinical outcomes
    • radiobiology at cellular level, currently unchartered territory
    • innovation happens at disciplinary interfaces
    • already started
    • collaborative with international partners

Notes from our discussion:

  • Need intro slide on science that will be addressed and why protons/ions are different to other sources of radiation. Need to emphasise, e.g.:
    • High LET; ions vs protons;
    • Flexibility of novel source; ion species, time, space, and energy distributions;
    • Different mechanisms for cell damage, different stimulation of immune response. Perhpas include "mean distance between ionising events" plot;
    • Mini/micro beams and biological excitement; (space and time structure of beam).
  • Critical to get Amato i/p (action KL). Need to gather set of presentations on wiki for reference (action KL).
  • Critical to get input from Yolanda and some of her slides (action KL).
  1. CIO submission: KL, All
    Stalled again, will need biographical information for trustees ... take forward separately
  • Under separate cover, liaise to get IMcN bio information (action KL).
  1. Actions and next steps: All
    • We agreed:
      • Goal to get draft slides by 14Jun in advance of 16Jun meeting.
      • CJ, KL, PP will liaise.
  1. DONM
    • 16Jun23; 08:00 BST
  1. AoB
    • Note visit to White City: 23Jun23
      • IMcN will identify Div. of Cancer prepresentative so that KL and whomever can liaise.
    • Report to Sandrine Heutz
      • Agree KL will ask for a meeting to brief on our pitch.
