The RRS is pleased to announce, for the fifth year, a special one-day
education workshop for Scholars-in-Training (SIT) members will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014, which is the day prior to the start of the RRS Meeting.

The aim of the education workshop is to provide young scientists, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students with a fundamental knowledge of biology, chemistry, and physics principles underlying radiation research, as well as an in-depth understanding of current issues in the field of translational research.

This program has been established through generous grants from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Department of Energy (DOE). SIT members accepted for this work-shop will therefore be able to attend at little extra cost.



As an additional incentive for SITs 1) to participate in the annual meeting and 2) to contribute to the scientific proceedings, RRS shall provide a $100 discount off of the normal meeting registration rate for any SIT who submits an abstract that is accepted by the evaluation committee.
