ONE REGISTRATION GIVES ACCESS TO BOTH RRS ANNUAL MEETING AND CRH 2016 MEETING
As the population of Americans and the world increases so too does the risk of developing cancer. Radiotherapy plays a prominent role in the control and eradication of nearly every type of cancer and critical to the continued and future success of radiotherapy is a fundamental understanding of radiation effects at the biophysical, radiochemical, molecular and tissue specific levels. The increasing world population also places a heavy demand on technology at many levels, many of which depend on radiation for energy production, food sterilization and medical diagnostics. Occupational and environmental exposures can contribute to secondary radiogenic cancers highlighting further the need to understand the detailed effects of ionizing radiation exposure on biological systems. The efficient and timely detection and treatment of cancer and other diseases that depend on radiation will not only improve patient outcomes and quality of life for cancer survivors, but also help resolve rising health-care expenses.

Specific areas of emphasis will include:
• The use of radiation in the treatment of organ specific cancers.
• Managing adverse neurocognitive outcomes following cancer treatments.
• Treating hypoxia, inflammation and radioresistance through advancements in imaging, targeted approaches, immune &metabolic modulation.
• Origins and risks of radiogenic cancers.
• Cancer and normal tissue stem cells in disease progression and recovery from radiation injury.
|The Conference on Radiation and Health is occurring in conjunction with the RRS Annual Meeting. One registration gives full access to both meetings - you will be asked during registration whether you will attend both programs.
