Objective

Gain basic knowledge in radiobiology
Explore all application field of radiobiology: Translational research in Oncology/Radio-Oncology, Research related to space travel, to radiation protection.

Understanding the molecular basis involved in tumours and normal tissus response to anti-cancer therapies combining radio-chemotherapy and targeted therapies. In order to optimize anti-cancer treatments.

Content

Integration of radiobiology and molecular basis of oncology
Understanding the cellular responses to radiation: cell signaling, vascular alterations, DNA damages and repair pathways, radiation-induced cell death and repopulation, response of normal and tumor stem cells to irradiation, Role of tumor metabolism and of the immune system in the response to irradiation.
Novel therapeutic strategies will be discussed.

Evaluation

The course will be given in English/French depending upon the audience.
