Radiation is a highly-developed field with an output that is applicable in many sub-disciplines of the life sciences. The Association of Radiation Research wishes to invite you to their sixteenth annual congress. The association wishes to gather leading-experts in the broad-field of radiation research to collaborate and network this August in Manchester.

The conference has four themes: 1) responses to DNA damage, 2) translational research, 3) Radiotherapeutic research, and 4) ecological health effects. The subject-matter of the conference includes, but is not limited to, the topics of: DNA repairs and the response to damage signalling, high LET/protons, chemistry, microbeams, hypoxia, immune system responses and the consequences for immunotherapy, human tissue damage, therapy involving particles, Molecular imaging, radiation protection, biomarkers, epidemiology and ecology.

For each topic there will be a chair and a sub-committee of under 10 members will be assembled to advise on the programme on that topic. Each sub-committee will have a representative from the United States, Japan, and Europe. Our aim is to insure diverse representation from all countries included in the IARR.

There will be 14 sessions across 4 days of the congress, with presentations and workshops from postdoctoral and tenured researchers alike. Expect presentations from Prof. Rob Bristow of the University of Manchester, Dr. Nori Nakumura of the Radiation Effects Research Foundation, and Prof. Amato Giaccia of the University of Oxford. Prof. Dudley Goodhead, Dr. Eleanor Blakely, and Prof. Penny Jeggo will also be presented with the IARR Henry S. Kaplan Distinguished Scientist Award, the ICRU Twentieth Gray Medal, ARR Weiss Medal respectively for their contributions to science.
