Reflections on the Slovenian Center for Proton Therapy, which promotes the idea of setting up a research center for the exchange of ideas and planning research in the field of advanced diagnostics and cancer therapy. As part of this initiative, we want to connect various scientific disciplines and knowledge in Slovenia and in the wider region.
If you are interested in the topic and would like to learn more, sign up for a free online lecture and workshop entitled RC Advance: Challenges of the Science of Advanced Diagnostics and Therapy, organized by the Slovenian Innovation Hub, SRIP Health – Medicine.
The keynote lectures and workshop will take place on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm (CET) in English.
We are pleased to announce two distinguished guests, top experts in the field of medical physics, Prof. Dr. Rock Mackie of the University of Wisconsin, Madison USA, who will speak on Operative Oncology, and Prof. Dr. Thomas Bortfeld of Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston USA, who will lecture on Advancing cancer medicine in hospitals and research centers.
The workshop will also be attended by Slovenian experts representing the widest range of expertise related to the development of proton therapy in Slovenia.
Participation is free, only your registration is required via the online form here. You can read more about the event in the attachment in onepager. A few days before the workshop, we will send a web link to the event to registered participants.
