ASTRO Science Workshops

  • Upcoming Workshops


  • ASTRO Think Tank: The Impact of Biomarkers and Nanomedicine in Radiation OncologyNew advances in biomarkers to predict radiosensitivity/resistance and to determine good therapies to combine with radiation is making it possible to predict outcomes. We're also seeing advances in ways to use nanotechnology to improve treatment. This one-day meeting will touch on these and other topics.
    2018 Research WorkshopThe microenvironment of a tumor can affect many aspects of the tumor itself, and can have major impacts on the prognosis of the patient. This workshop will cover many of the questions surrounding the tumor microenvironment and its affect on radiation responses.
    2018 Letter of Intent WorkshopThe Letter of Intent Writing Workshop is a small meeting meant to help radiation oncology researchers learn to write successful Letters of Intent in order to successfully begin clinical trials. The Letter of Intent Writing Workshop will be held twice in 2018.
    Grant Writing WorkshopThis workshop allows burgeoning radiation oncology researchers to learn from some of our most successful members how to write a successful grant application. The Grant Writing Workshop will be held as part of the 2018 ASTRO Annual Meeting.
