FLASH Radiotherapy and Particle Therapy Conference (FRPT 2021)
1-3 December 2021 | Vienna and Online
FRPT 2021 has grown out of FLASH workshops hosted by Institut Curie in Paris (1st FLASH Workshop in 2016) and CHUV in Lausanne (2nd FLASH Workshop in 2019). The conference will include the 3rd FLASH Workshop in this series, the workshops of the EMPIR project UHDpulse "Metrology for advanced radiotherapy using particle beams with ultra-high pulse dose rates" and INSPIRE, the integrating activity for European research in proton beam therapy, and is also being developed together with GSI’s International Biophysics Collaboration and MedAustron.
FRPT 2021 looks to build a worldwide organisation of scientists and professionals interested in FLASH Radiotherapy (RT) using protons, electrons, heavier charged ions and photons. The Conference will gather researchers and students (from academia and industry) with professionals working in clinical oncology, and provide a multidisciplinary forum to discuss the latest developments in FLASH RT.
FRPT 2021 goes from basic science, through preclinical research and combines these with translational applications and clinical trials and treatment. The ultimate goal of the Conference is to harness the potential for FLASH RT in a rigorous scientific and quality assured environment and to act as a forum for the very latest advancements in this rapidly developing field.
Many OMA partners, including University of Manchester, PTB, The Christie (UK), GSI and MedAustron, are involved in this conference.
The OMA project is recognized as a formal collaborator in the event.
