Two of the
main objectives of the ARR are to
promote learning and advance education in the field of radiation research and to
extend, increase and disseminate knowledge of radiation research in the fields
of biology, chemistry, physics, medicine and other related disciplines.
achieve these goals we would like to announce a new travel bursary scheme

with the International Congress of Radiation Research (Travel awards for both
Early Career and established ARR investigators).

May and 30th November. Applicants will be notified of outcome within
