(University of Manchester)
This meeting will bring together industry, clinicians and academia to explore how accelerator technologies can be applied to future medical isotope production needs, including:
· 99mTc production methods
· Novel compact accelerator technologies
· Novel irradiation methods
The aim of the workshop is to review the state of the art of novel accelerator technologies for production or radioisotopes for medicine, and to seed future joint clinical/industrial/academic collaborative projects which will address challenges in future radioisotope supply.
The meeting is being supported by the EUCARD2 FP7 project, jointly through WP2 (Catalysing Innovation) and WP4 (Accelerator Applications).
Date: 26-27 March 2015
