GBS Jahrestagung – 23.-25. September, Mannheim


Dear Members of the GBS, dear scientists,

It is a great pleasure that GBS entrusted us as local organizers of the 2019 22st Annual Meeting in Mannheim.

The meeting will encompass presentations from all major topics of radiation research ranging from molecular to cellular effects, High-LET and UV radiation, as well as interrelationships with the immune system.
In line with that, we will make an effort to include presentations of promising translational approaches in radiation oncology.
Moreover, keynote presentations from leaders in their fields will introduce the scientific background and will provide an overview covering recent developments in their areas of research.

We would like to cordially invite you to contribute a presentation reflecting your current research activities in the field of radiation research. In addition to invited key note speakers as mentioned above, opportunities for oral and poster presentations selected after evaluation by the organizing committee will be given in each scientific session.

Similar to preceding conferences, the 2019 program starts with a session organized by young investigators followed by sessions covering mechanisms of DNA repair and DNA damage response by ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, research on High-LET and UV radiation, the immune system in the context of radiobiology, strategies to optimize radiation response and radiation protection.
The conference will further include poster sessions for close interaction and personal discussion of novel data. In each of the four scientific categories the best poster will be awarded by a poster price.
Additionally, the GBS will fund travel awards for selected students following evaluation of their abstract.
Moreover, outstanding scientists and excellent publications will be honored by the Dieter Frankenberg GBS-Young Investigator award and by the “Best-Paper-of-the-Year” award in biology, physics and medicine, respectively.

The meeting is scheduled for September 23th -25th at the Campus of the University Hospital of the Universitätsmedizin Mannheim, centrally located in walking distance form the city and also directly connected by public transportation.

Abstract submission is scheduled until June 4th, early registration until June 30th.

Submission and registration will be operated by the GBS website.

We sincerely hope that you will contribute to this exciting event and look forward to welcoming you in Mannheim in September 2019.
