Education Aims: To be able to describe the response of biological systems following exposure to ionising radiation, to interpret the biological basis and consequences of conventional and novel fractionation regimes in radiotherapy and to critically appraise the significance of new research findings.
Learning Outcomes: A series of specialist lectures will provide students with an overview of the principles of the interaction of ionising radiation with living systems. Particular attention will be given to the scientific basis of fractionation in radiotherapy, radiation pathology and normal tissue effects, tumour radiobiology and molecular aspects of radiation biology.
