3rd Webinar on Personalized Medicine

Radiation Response Biomarkers for Individualised Cancer Treatments

I am pleased to welcome you to this 2nd Webinar on Radiation responses biomarkers for individualised cancer treatments.
This webinar follows the Journal of Personalised Medicine special issue on Radiation Response Biomarkers for Individualised Cancer Treatments for which I was Guest Editor.

Biomarkers are essential for predicting and/or monitoring radiation exposure-associated effects. The aim of this Special Issue was to present an insight into the ongoing state-of-the-art research in the field of improvements in the precision of dose delivery during radiotherapy treatment and in the field of radiation response biomarker for applications in personalised medicine. The main goals being to allow individual specificities and differences in sensitivity to be considered to offer tailored treatments and/or better protect those at higher risk.

Date: 12 December 2022

Time: 2:30 pm CET | 8:30 am EST | 9:30 pm CST Asia

I am biologist who carried out a PhD in Radiobiology-Radiopathology I worked on inter-individual radiation sensitivity and DSB repair. I identified the first radiotherapy patient whose radiation toxicity was due to a defect in DNA DSB repair which was thought to be almost incompatible with survival at the time; it was found later that the patient had a mutation in ligase IV. we are trying to better understand the mechanisms by which acute or protracted ionising radiation exposure either of natural or medical origin interacts and affects cells and individuals. I also work on identifying and validating new biomarkers of radiation exposure, susceptibility and toxicity and in cancer genomics to identify mutational signatures of ionizing radiation in second malignancies. Since 2005, I am leading the Cancer Mechanisms and Biomarkers group at UKHSA.

Invited Speakers
