The HITRIplus community is pleased to announce that the 3rd Specialized Course on Clinical Aspects of Heavy Ion Therapy Research will be held from 3th to 7th July 2023, entirely online and free of charge.
The course will be delivered by over 20 world leaders in the field and will focus on head and neck, sarcoma, prostate, liver and pancreas, organ motion, treatment planning, re-irradiation, gynae and rare indications, innovative methods, present and future clinical trials and radiobiology.
The course also includes a “train-the-trainer” session inspired by the very popular May 2021 HITRIplus Masterclass school. This is based on the professional, open-source, research toolkit matRad, tailored to students’ and researchers’ requirements in treatment planning.
The school is primarily intended for medical students specialised in oncology as well as clinicians in radiotherapy and particle therapy. The ultimate goal is to address and prepare motivated oncologists in becoming part of the heavy ion research community and who may then optimaly exploit and access Europe’s heavy ion therapy research infrastructures.
