The RADIATE (Radiation Innovations for Therapy and Education) network is an oriented training and research programme for young researchers in the specialised field of radiobiology.
This network unites seven European top-academic institutions and relevant partners in the field of molecular therapeutics and radiation science. Each academic institution recruited two early stage researchers (ESRs) offering them a PhD fellowship and the possibility to develop research in the areas of Cancer Cell Radiosensitivity, Tumour Microenvironment and New Therapeutic Strategies for Radiotherapy.
Moreover the RADIATE network offers a multi-disciplinary and inter-sectoral training and research programme for a new generation of researchers, enhancing their career perspectives while answering questions in cancer biology.
The training programme exploits the experience of some of Europe’s best academic centres and private companies, allowing a merger of basic translational and clinical approaches and perspectives. During the three years of the training programme, ERSs will develop their PhD projects at their affiliated academic institutions, participate in the workshops, provided by the RADIATE network, and at international level events.
All ESRs are enrolled in a PhD programme and attend courses offered at their academic host institutions. As their research projects evolve, ESRs will have the opportunity to complement their education according to their projects’ needs, by attending relevant lectures or modules within the network partners’ associated universities.
