Following the success of our first edition of The Molecular and Clinical Radiobiology Workshop (MCRW), the second edition will be featured as a pre-conference educational course on June 20th, 2016, providing participants a unique opportunity to attend the highly anticipated International Summit on Biomarkers and Therapeutic Advances in Radiation Oncology on June 21-22, 2016.

The MCRW is tailored to engage the participants through a distinguished series of short courses designed to fulfil the need to integrate the current paradigm shift in radiobiology into the practice of radiation oncology and research in clinically-applied radiobiology. The MCRW 2016 will be held as a full-day intensive program comprising 8 lectures, two tutorial sessions, and a luncheon meet-the-lecturer session.



The workshop aims to provide the participants with the prerequisite background to understand some of the key concepts of radiobiology including radiation-induced DNA damage and repair, radiation therapy-induced cell fate decisions, effect of the microenvironment on tumor radioresponse, dose fractionation, stereotactic ablative radiotherapy, chemoradiation regimen and tumor-targeted radiosensitization.


Target Group

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



The MCRW 2016 will be hosted on June 20th, 2016 at the state-of-the-art Auditorium and the atrium of the newly built Center for Translational Biology at the Research Institute of McGill University Health Centre.
