Translating radiotheranostic cancer research into clinical practice in Europe

The JRC is organizing an Experts & Stakeholders Workshop, which will take place at the  European Commission's Joint Research Centre site in Ispra, Italy, on 27th April 2023.

In the follow up of the recent High Level Nuclear Round Table with Commissioner Mariya Gabriel on 13 February 2023, obstacles for a translation of research into a broader use of theranostic radiopharmaceuticals in clinical practice, as well as further expected developments in radiotheranostics will be discussed and identified.

How to register

Should you be interested in participating, please contact the meeting assistants for further information and details on the registration procedure, indicating whether you have a preference to attend on-site in Ispra or remotely via Webex.
