3rd RadioTransNet Workshop: Towards a Better Understandingof Irradiation Impact on Healthy Tissues

12 déc. 2019
Institut de Radioprotection et de Sureté Nucléaire, IRSN - Fontenay aux Roses (92) (France)

The RADIOTRANSNET project is a French initiative for the structuration of preclinical research in the field of radiotherapy in France. It has been submitted by the French Society of Oncological Radiotherapy (SFRO) and the French society of medical physics (SFPM). It has been favorably evaluated by the International Evaluation Committee of INCa (the French Cancer Institute). RADIOTRANSNET network has officially been launched at the end of 2018. Research and Innovation in optimized medical applications of ionizing radiation aim to improve patient care and quality of life. The ambition of RADIOTRANSNET is to propose a robust methodology of science-based consensus aiming to build a national research consortium dedicated to radiation-oncology, implementing a strategic research agenda (SRA) based on rigorous scientific and medical state of the art in radiotherapy and radiobiology, and defining a road map to favor existing scientific and clinical interactions. Four main strategies (4 workpackages) have been identified to improve therapeutic index of radiotherapy and define RADIOTRANSNET network activities: • WP1: Optimizing the specificity of the dose distribution of radiotherapy treatments, • WP2: Decreasing radiotherapy side effects on normal tissue, • WP3: Combining new molecular targeted agents and biological modifiers, • WP4: Optimizing dose modelling and treatment planning This Workshop aims, through several oral presentations, to draw up an inventory of current practices and emerging methods in order to address the key issues and to identify needs. Then, a “working groups” session will allow reflections and exchanges to begin the structuration process in order to define an adapted research program within the RadiotransNet Network.
