Perspectives for cancer tumour research and therapy with ions




The aim is to present and inform the scientific and medical communities in Greece, about the status and resent progress in cancer tumour therapy using ions, further potential and opportunities of this method, as well as future perspectives, including capacity building.

This event follows a focus meeting, 4-6 April, dedicated to the initiative proposing “A Facility for Tumour Therapy and Biomedical Research in South East Europe” pursued by the “South East Europe International Institute for Sustainable Technologies” opening up possibilities for innovative scientific research and patient treatment.
