→ Compte-rendu de l'édition 2023 du workshop[nbsp]"Optimizing Imaging and Dose-Response in RadiotherapieS”

The "Tumour Targeting, Imaging, Radiotherapies” network of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its sixteenth international workshop which will take place[nbsp]from the 4th to 7th of October 2023 in Erquy, West of France..

The workshop is dedicated to young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate.
The 16th international workshop edition entitled “Optimizing Imaging and Dose-Response in RadiotherapieS”will confront the points of view and issues of various research fields such as Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, Computer science, involved in the development of molecular and external beam radiotherapies in Oncology.

The 2023 topic will focus on how to optimize dose-response relationships in the field of molecular and external beam radiotherapies in Oncology with the contribution of imaging. These aspects will be developed, through the following sessions :

      • New paradigms in tumour targeting
      • Alternative biological models
      • Artificial intelligence and imaging
      • How to distribute the dose in radiotherapy according to time and space?
      • Therapeutic combinations
