The course is aimed at graduated students (in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Engineering…) who are interested in advanced radiotherapy techniques, including hadron therapy, Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT), therapy with radionuclides and magnetic hyperthermia. The first day will be devoted to propaedeutic topics including radiation-matter interaction, dosimetry and conventional radiotherapy.

The school aims to provide an overview of the main physical, biological and medical aspects characterizing each of the aforementioned techniques, with focus both on basic principles and related research activities, and on clinical applications.

Lectures will be given by international experts including people working at the National Centre for Oncological Hadrontherapy (CNAO), one of the few centres in the world where patients are treated with Carbon ions. A virtual tour of the CNAO facility will be possible, as well as a visit to the Applied Nuclear Energy Laboratory (LENA), where BNCT research is performed at the research nuclear reactor and radionuclides for medicine are produced.


ISIRT 2021 will take place in Pavia from September 20th to 24th, 2021.

The lectures are organized in the Department of Physics of Università degli studi di Pavia, via Bassi 6, Pavia, Italy. Here you can find a map to reach the school site.

All activities (scientific sessions, poster sessions lunch and coffee breaks) take place at the Department of Physics of Università degli studi di Pavia, via Bassi 6, Pavia.
