•  Radiation oncologists who lack basic radiobiological science or who want to update their knowledge (i.e. for CME)
•  Medical physicists who wish to familiarise themselves with this field
•  Physicians from other disciplines administering ionising radiation
•  Radiation therapists (RTTs)



•  A series of basic lectures introducing molecular and clinical radiobiology
•  Mechanisms and models or radiation cell killing
•  The linear-quadratic approach to fractionation
•  Molecular basis of radiation response
•  Radiobiology and tolerance of normal tissues to (re)treatment
•  Alternative fractionation schedules in radiotherapy
•  Tumour hypoxia and the micro-environment
•  Combined radiotherapy and chemo-therapy
•  The volume and dose-rate effect in radiotherapy
