Thursday – RADIATE ESR workshop
The RADIATE team and Keynote speakers travelled by train from Paris to Orsay to attend the workshop. This included a Meet the Expert session in Orsay, where the RADIATE ESRs had the chance to question the invited speakers about future career paths in radiation biology.
A tour of the Musée Curie followed the workshop – an excellent opportunity to learn more about the research and lives of Marie and Pierre Curie.
The evening ended with all members and invited speakers dining together.
Friday – IMSCM2018
This meeting in a “workshop” style aimed to highlight the areas of research supported by the RADIATE consortium. RADIATE brought together internationally recognised leaders in the field, to interact with all attendees and the RADIATE students, to focus on current work in radiation biology.
With approximately 100 participants, many of them young researchers, from Europe, the USA and Canada, the IMSCM2018 proved to be a vibrant meeting and allowed a lively exchange of ideas in the field of radiation biology.
Both the meeting and the evening social event, a cruise on the River Seine, provided good opportunities for scientific exchanges and networking.
Saturday – RADIATE Social event
This was a walking tour of Montmartre followed by lunch in a café, for all RADIATE members.
