RadioActive Podcast: Pierre Montay-Gruel: FLASH Pioneer

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 20, 2020

Dr. Pierre Montay-Gruel is one of the pioneers studying FLASH radiation. He began his work at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland in Dr. Marie-Catherine Vozenin's lab. There, he studied FLASH effects on the brain and glioblastoma in mice. He is now expanding his research at the University of California- Irvine with Dr. Charles Limoli.

RadioActive Vodcast with Stephen McMahon, PhD

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 20, 2020

Stephen McMahon, PhD, of Queen's University Belfast is the 2018 winner of the RRS Jack Fowler Award, an honor given to an early career scientist showing exemplary work. His early research involved putting small gold particles into a tumor with the hypothesis that the gold being heavier than normal tissue will increase the dose and therefore provide better tumor control. More recently, he is using biological data to better predict cell response to radiation with the hope to eventually apply the information to the clinic.

Chernobyl: Demystifying the tragedy

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 20, 2020

Thirty years ago, the Chernobyl accident not only caused physical harm, but incited palpable fear and anxiety. In an effort to promote education and open communication of the radiation sciences, the Radiation Research Society invites you to ask questions about Chernobyl. Submit your question at radres.org/Chernobyl. A core group of researchers will go over the questions, select the most pertinent to the topic, and pair them with the ideal researchers to answer them this November at the Annual Meeting of the RRS. We’ll compile the results and release the video on our YouTube page to continue the conversation. Be sure to follow the RRS Channel for the update!

RadioActive Vodcast with Claire Vanpouille-Box

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 20, 2020

Claire Vanpouille-Box, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at Weill Cornell Medical University. She is a past winner of the RRS Marie Curie Award, at which time she was studying radiotherapy on breast cancer tumor models in the Sandra Demaria Lab. Dr. Vanpouille-Box discusses her most recent work, much of which is published in Nature. She was recently promoted and plans to focus much of her own lab's work on glial malignancy, particularly on how many fractionations should be done to minimize damage. Dr. Vanpouille-Box also shares how she manages her new promotion along with a growing family and opportunities for support. View Dr. Vanpouille-Box's published works on Nature.com.

RadioActive Vodcast with Charles Limoli & Marie-Catherine Vozenin

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 20, 2020

Join Allison Burell, MS, MPhil in a roundtable discussion on FLASH radiation with Drs. Charles Limoli and Marie-Catherine Vozenin. FLASH is a new approach in radiation oncology that enables scientists (and potentially clinicians in the near future) to deliver a dedicated dose of radiation in an unprecedented short period of time (less than a second). The group discusses the surprising effects, how the idea came to fruition (largely through Dr. Vozenin) and the future of the therapy.
