From November 20th to 22nd the congress “Radiations in medicine and biology: research status and clinical applications” will take place at Padova University and at the National Laboratories of Frascati of Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (Infn). The meeting is organized jointly, beside Padova University and Infn, by the Italian Society for the Researches on Radiations (Sirr) and by the Italian Federation Researches on Radiations (Firr), federation that every scientific association involved in radiations in the biomedical field joins. The first day congress will take place at the “Ippolito Nievo” hall by the Del Bo’ Palace of the University, while the following days will take place at the Laboratories of Infn in Legnaro: a double localization that symbolizes not only the close cooperation between the National Laboratories of Legnaro and University in many research field of common interest, but also their joined activities in the applications of radiations in biomedicine.

The Congress has received the support of the Presidency of the Ministers Council, of the Ministry for Health, Ministry for Education, University and Research, of the major of Padova, of Enea, Cnr, Public Health Service, beside Infn and Padova University. The event has gained credit within the Programme of the Ministry for Health “Everlasting Education in Medicine” dedicated to physicists, biologists, research chemists, medical doctors, and technicians.

Researches and clinics of the principal Italian research and medical institutions will take part in the congress and the most innovative aspects of the research in radiodiagnostics, radiotherapy and radioprotection will be discussed. Beside the most recent evidences in cellular and molecular radiobiology, the congress will present the results obtained in diagnostics and in therapy through radiomedicines, brachytherapy and protons beams and the most advanced imaging techniques. Moreover the positive clinical results and the development of Catana project (Centro di Adroterapia e Applicazioni Nucleari Avanzati) will be presented and discussed. Catana project is operating at the South National Laboratories of Infn and is devoted to the treatment of the eye melanoma through protons beams. Furthermore the status of advancement of the project for a centre of adrotherapy will be illustrated. It will rise in Pavia and for its construction an agreement was signed between Cnao (National Centre of Oncological Adrotherapy) and Infn the 12th of November. Moreover Spes project of the Legnaro National Laboratories of Infn will be discussed. In this context scientists foreseen the production of neutrons beams to be used in the treatment of skin tumours through the “boron neutronic capture” technique (Bnct). Finally the radiotherapy equipe of Padova Hospital will present the clinical results obtained in the treatment of eye melanoma through brachytherapy.
On Friday 21st November there will be whereas a round table, in which university, hospital, and Italian research institutes expert representatives will take part, with the aim of stimulating and developing the radiobiological research in our country. Enforcing this research field, an essential contribution can come in fact for the improvement of treatments in oncological radiotherapy, as in nuclear medicine and radiodiagnostics as well.
