Public lecture on health and physics at ICTR-PHE 2012

“Treating cancer in the 21st century: biology, physics and genomics”
by Prof. Søren M. Bentzen, University of Wisconsin, USA.
18.30 on Tuesday 28 February, 2012
Room 2, CICG (International Conference Centre Geneva),
17 rue de Varembé, Geneva
The lecture will be held in English, with simultaneous translation into French.


As part of the International Conference on Translational Research in Radio-Oncology and Physics for Health in Europe (ICTR-PHE 2012), a public lecture will be held on Tuesday 28 February on new ways of treating cancer. The lecture will particularly focus on how collaboration between different scientific disciplines, such as physics and biology, is producing new technologies in fields like biomedical imaging. As a result of this and other developments, progress is being made in the study and understanding of cancer, and cure rates and quality of life in cancer survivors is being improved.

The speaker is Prof. Søren M. Bentzen from the University of Wisconsin, USA. Originally from Denmark, he is professor of Human Oncology and member of the Imaging and Radiation Science program of the Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

Jacques Bernier, Head of the Radiotherapy Department at the Genolier Clinic, Switzerland, invites you to attend the public lecture:
