FLASH RADIOTHERAPY AND PARTICLE THERAPY

FRPT: New Horizon in Therapy and Treatment

FRPT looks to build a worldwide organisation of scientists and professionals interested in FLASH Radiotherapy using protons, electrons, heavier charged ions and photons.

FRPT 2021 will be the first multidisciplinary forum for the latest research on FLASH and particle therapy. We will bring together researchers and students with professionals working in clinical oncology (clinicians, medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiotherapy technologists, and nurses) and industry, and provide a multidisciplinary forum  to discuss the latest developments in FLASH Radiotherapy.

FRPT goes from basic science, through preclinical research and combines these with translational applications and clinical trials and treatment.

Throughout the conference, we will discuss all modalities related to FLASH-RT with the best international experts in the field: clinical trials, protocols, mechanism, new horizons and more. Participants will get access to the very latest progress on FLASH clinical devices, Metrology and dose monitoring, treatment planning systems, modeling, physio-chemistry, biological mechanisms, preclinical studies and clinical trials.

The ultimate goal of FRPT is to harness the potential for FLASH Radiotherapy in a rigorous scientific and quality assured environment and to act as a forum for the very latest advancements in this rapidly developing field.

 

About FLASH Radiotherapy:

FLASH Radiotherapy is a rapidly developing area that has the potential to provide a step change in the way we deliver radiotherapy.

It induces a phenomenon known as the FLASH effect, whereby the ultra-high dose rate radiation (several orders of magnitude higher than what is currently used in conventional clinical radiotherapy) reduces the normal tissue toxicities commonly associated with conventional radiotherapy, while still maintaining local tumor control.
