RRS Members:
It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce the 2014 RRS Award winners. Through nominations and peer review, the below recipients of the Failla Award and Michael Fry Award have been chosen to be honored at the 2014 RRS Annual Meeting at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, NV September 21-24, 2014.

Nominations are still open for the Jack Fowler Award and the recipient of the 2014 Radiation Research Editor's Award will be announced soon.

The 2014 Planning Committee is putting together an excellent scientific program for the annual meeting - definitely the event not-to-miss of 2014. If you haven't done so already, register for the annual meeting at now at the early registration rate, which ends June 15, 2014. We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas.


Francis A. Cucinotta
RRS President

The Failla Award was established in 1962-1963 to honor the late Gioacchino Failla, one of the founding fathers of the Radiation Research Society and its second president. The award is given annually to an outstanding member of the radiation research community in recognition of a history of significant contributions to radiation research. Each year the RRS President presents the awardee with an engraved medallion and cash award. The membership of the Awards and Honors Committee ensures that all disciplines in the Society are given representation for this award. 

Professor Peter O'Neill
is Head of the DNA Damage Group and Deputy Director of the Oxford Institute of Radiation Oncology at the University of Oxford following his move in 2007 from the MRC Radiation and Genome Stability Unit, Harwell (1983-2007), where he held several senior positions. 


Professor O'Neill is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is Course Director of the MSc course on Radiation Biology at the Institute and a Fellow at St Cross College, Oxford... READ FULL BIO

The intent is to recognize an individual early in his/her career, but not defined by any specific age. In keeping with the intent of the award, early in career is typically considered to be within 10 years of completion of training (e.g., post-doc, residency, fellowship). A candidate is not required to be a member of the Society, but the work upon which the nomination is based must be in one or more of the areas of radiation research. Candidates who are unsuccessful in any given year may be re-nominated in a subsequent year if they continue to meet the above criteria.

Dr. David S. Yu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine. He received his MD from the University of Texas at Southwestern Medical School and PhD from the University of Cambridge prior to completing residency training in Radiation Oncology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He graduated with honors from Stanford University with a BS in Biology.

Dr. Yu is actively engaged in both clinical and basic science research. He is interested in understanding how cells respond to replication stress and how we can utilize this knowledge for improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment.... READ FULL BIO
