Molecular & Clinical Radiobiology Workshop 2015


The workshop on molecular and clinical radiobiology was held from Wednesday,  June 17, to Friday, June 19, 2015, at the the newly opened Glen site of the McGill University Health Centre:

Cedars Cancer Centre, Glen Site, DS1-1427

McGill University Health Centre

1001 Decarie Blvd, Montreal,

Quebec, H4A 3J1, Canada

Metro station: Vendome. Bus: 17, 37, 90, 102, 105, 124


The Molecular and Clinical Radiobiology Workshop is tailored to engage the participants through a series of lectures, panel discussions, meet-the-lecturer sessions, (June 17-18th) followed by a lab practical tutorial (half-day June 19th) in the state-of-the-art cancer research laboratories at the Research Institute of McGill University Health Centre.

This educational intensive program is designed to fulfill the need to integrate the current paradigm shift in radiobiology into a multidisciplinary approach in the practice of radiation oncology and research in clinically-applied radiobiology.


The workshop aims to provide the participants with the prerequisite background to understand some of the key concepts of radiobiology including:

  1. Molecular mechanisms induced by radiation therapy on the tumour and its microenvironment
  2. Radiobiology of normal tissue responses
  3. Tumour response to radiotherapy
  4. Principles and biology of chemoradiation regimen and targeted therapies
  5. Radiobiological modeling

Target Group

  • Radiation oncology residents, medical physics residents and scientists enrolled in a radiobiology training program.
  • Radiation oncologists, medical physicists and scientists with research interests in clinically-applied radiobiology who wish to update their knowledge in molecular radiobiology.

Certificate of Attendance

To be eligible to receive the Certificate of Attendance, participants will need to complete and submit the program and speaker evaluations during the workshop.
