HIRO and OncoRay Lecture Series: Molecular and Cellular Radiobiology (Prof. Dr. Nils Cordes)

  • Address: Virtual
  • Registration necessary: Yes

Exposure to ionizing radiation induces myriads of molecular and biological reactions in a cell. Fundamental concepts of cellular radiobiology including modes of cell death, proliferation and cellular targets will be introduced. While some reactions differ between normal and tumor cells, the majority shows to function in a uniform manner. Particularly, mechanisms that govern cell survival, proliferation and DNA repair will be reviewed and discussed within the context of testing novel therapeutic approaches against cancer.

The lectures take place online only via Zoom. All DKTK members are invited to register via e-mail to marcel.schaefer@dkfz-heidelberg.de to one or even all lectures of the lecture series.
