The Fall Northwest Chapter of the AAPM is hosting a one-day symposium on Friday, November 7th, 2014 at the UW Medicine, South Lake Union (SLU), Seattle, WA. The symposium is entitled “Celebrating Madam Curie’s Birthday and Advances in Cancer Radiation Treatment”. The lecture begins with our keynote speaker Robert D. Stewart, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Washington, Department of Radiation Oncology and his talk is entitled: “Radiation Response Modeling from the Molecular to Tissue” .
We are also soliciting abstracts from our membership. Those wishing to submit an abstract (250 word maximum) for consideration as a regular presentation may do so at the following link http://www.radonc.washington.edu/ available after September 16th.
Medical physics graduate students, residents, and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration for our Young Investigator Session. A special panel will review all young investigator abstract submissions to choose those selected for presentation.
These presentations will be judged and ranked for awards. The total time allocated for each talk will be thirty minutes for our regular session and fifteen minutes for talks in the young investigator session. Abstract submissions are due before 5 PM PST, October 1, 2014 and should be submitted by email attachment as a PDF or Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
