Event organiser Professor Alan Nahum said: "The course provides an in-depth understanding of the scientific basis of radiation treatment for cancer and of the use of radiobiological modelling in evaluating and improving treatments. It brings together some of the world's leading experts - for this reason it attracts global interest.”
