2017 Meeting

The Annual Meeting of the Association for Radiation Research 2017 was held on 26th-28th June 2017 at St Hilda’s College, Oxford. Topics included: clinical developments to improve radiation response, expanding boundaries in radiotherapy, imaging, novel strategies for radiosensitisation, how underlying biology impacts radiation response, challenges to effective radiation response, radio/immunotherapy combinations and biomarker development. The meeting was well attended and we had some outstanding invited speakers including Kevin Harrington, Kaye Williams, Maria Hawkins, Kevin Prise, Robert Jeraj, Philippe Lambin, James O’Connor, Sarah Bohndiek, Rob Mairs, Oliver Tillement, Gillies McKenna, Anthony Chalmers, Rene Medema, Marc Vooijs, Anna Dubrovska, Rob Coppes, Richard Kennedy, Udo Gaipl, Marco Durante, David Sebag-Montefiore, Catharine West and Francesca Buffa. The Weiss Award 2017 was presented by Penny Jeggo to John Yarnold.
Each session included talks by Scientists in Training (SIT). John Warmenhoven from the University of Manchester won the prize for the best SIT presentation. The organisers congratulate all the SITS on their contribution to each session. Poster prizes (kindly sponsored by EACR, Worldwide Cancer Research, and Baker Ruskinn) were awarded to Andrew Dhawan, Dafni Pefani, Elliot Abbott, Julie Nonnekens and Maria Likhatcheva.
The banquet dinner was generously supported by RPS Services and the Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology. Many thanks also to our other sponsors: Cancer Research UK, Gray Laboratories Cancer Research Trust, EACR, LH Gray Memorial Trust, Oxford Optronix, CTRad, Baker Ruskinn, Don Whitley Scientific, Worldwide Cancer Research and XStrahl.
