Strategic workshop on the Radiobiology of particle beams

8th November 2023
Venue: Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus
(Sherfield Building, Room 164)

The workshop is framed within a collaboration between Imperial College London and the CNRS. The goal of this collaboration is to advance the radiobiology/radiotherapy domain by means of new initiatives such as LhARA.

The idea of the workshop is to generate some cross-fertilization with different disciplines such as metabolomics, proteomics, immunology which can help us to better understand the biological impact of the novel radiotherapy techniques that we develop.
