This meeting will be jointly hosted by AAPM and Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers (PS-OCs). PS-OCs comprise of 12 NCI funded centers and their cross-disciplinary teams to explore the physical laws and principles that shape and govern the emergence and behavior of cancer at all scales, in an effort to open up new areas and support the development of clinical advances. AAPM and PS-OCs cover rather complimentary areas of physics involvement in medicine and biology, yet they have never formally communicated or interacted. The purpose of this meeting is to investigate synergies between the two communities of physics engagement in medicine and biology.
The goals of the meeting are:
- Identify novel areas of interaction between physical and medical sciences in non-traditional areas (e.g., beyond radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging)
- Identify synergies between AAPM and PS-OCs
- Prepare a roadmap of future collaborative efforts between two communities of physical scientists in medicine and biology
Registration for this meeting is limited to the first 100 registrants.
