RSM Working Group Events at the Annual Meeting

The AACR Annual Meeting is an extraordinary venue that fosters scientific discussions and helps build bridges across various disciplines. All attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities presented at the meeting to learn about the latest advances in radiation science and medicine, attend sessions outside your own areas of expertise, and network with other scientists and clinicians.

RSM Events at the AACR Annual Meeting 2018

Radiation Science and Medicine Working Group Town Hall Meeting and Networking Reception
Monday, April 16, 2018
5 - 7 p.m. CT
Marriott Marquis Chicago, Great Lakes E-G

Radiation Science and Medicine Working Group Scientific Session:
Utilizing Molecular Signatures to Inform Clinical Outcome Predictions in Radiation Response
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT
McCormick Place Convention Center-North, Room N228 (Level 2)
This session will explore the use of various molecular signatures for patient population identification and stratification. Emphasis will be placed on how genomic, proteomic, and radiomic signatures may best predict radiation response, therapeutic resistance, and clinical outcome.
