It is our pleasure to mention that First International School of Radiation Research (ISRR-2017) Theme: Radiation Carcinogenesis-Mechanisms and Experimental Models will be organized under the aegies of SRR during Feb 2-4, 2017 at Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar, Tamilanadu, India.
A brief about ISRR-2017 is as following:
The School is aimed to provide fundamental knowledge to young researchers and students about the mechanism of carcinogenesis, various aspects of radiation carcinogenesis and experimental models employed in the research area. ISRR-2017 includes lectures, evening/key note lectures by eminent scientists/researchers from India and abroad. Moreover, during the School, hands-on training/demonstration of techniques relevant to the area of radiation carcinogenesis will be provided by the experts. There will be informal interactive sessions for the participants with faculties.

The school will have limited participants (25-30).
The school will cover lectures on following topics by eminent scientists and experts from India and abroad:
- Basic of Cancer and Carcinogenesis
- DNA damage and genomic instability in the mechanism of carcinogenesis
- Radiation biological concepts and radiation carcinogenesis
- UV induced carcinogenesis
- Experimental models for carcinogenesis studies
- Carcinogenesis during cancer radiotherapy and accidental radiation exposure
Additionally, during the school, hands-on-training/demonstration will be provided on techniques like DNA damage, Apoptosis, Oxidative damage, Expression of oncogenes in tumor samples, histopathology of tumor samples.
