2016 Meeting

The Annual Meeting of the Association for Radiation Research 2016 was held on 27th-29th June 2016 at Stamford Court, University of Leicester. Topics included the 30th Anniversary of the Chernobyl Accident, DNA damage and repair, non-targeted and genetic effects of ionising radiation, radiation risk and environment, applied biomarkers and dosimetry, tumour signalling and hypoxia, and precision radiotherapy. The meeting was well attended and we had some outstanding invited speakers including Elisabeth Cardis, Stanislav Geras'kin, Jan Hoeijmakers, Tanja Stankovic, Yuri Dubrova, Nick Beresford, Deborah Oughton, Ulrike Kulka, Julia Hess, Hiroshi Harada, Geoffrey Higgins, Neil Burnet and Philippe Lambin. The Weiss Award 2016 was presented to Catharine West.
There was a dedicated session for talks by Scientists in Training (SIT). SIT talks were chosen from the abstracts and were presented by Donna Nile, Savneet Kaur Bains, Charlene Junkin, Jianzhou Chen, Rachel Lewis, Chris Connolly and Nicholas Henthorn. Jianzhou Chen from Oxford University won the prize for the best presentation. This was an outstanding session and the organisers congratulate all the SITS on their contribution to the session. Poster prizes (kindly sponsored by EACR) were awarded to Hussein Abbas, Stephen Bernard, Jessica Horsburgh, James Nicol, Victoria Tessyman and Ruth Thompson.

The talks by Elisabeth Cardis and Jan Hoeijmakers were sponsored by the European Association for Cancer Research and CRUK Leicester Centre respectively. Thanks also to our other sponsors: LH Gray Memorial Trust, CTRad, Baker Ruskinn, Don Whitley Scientific and XStrahl.
