About the event

This international 2-day meeting in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, on September 30th and October 1st 2021 will focus on the combination of radiotherapy and immunotherapy and offers an attractive scientific program with excellent (inter)national speakers.

The majority of cancer patients will undergo radiotherapy during the course of their disease. Combining this local treatment with immunotherapy offers an exciting opportunity to enhance potential systemic effects, which could lead to more successful and less toxic outcomes for many cancer patients.

Additionally, the recent clinical introduction of MR-guided radiotherapy at the Radboudumc will allow for delivering fractions of radiation that are more likely to induce an anti-tumor response than is currently feasible. In depth -Omics analyses, and further integration of (functional) imaging and biomarkers will help to establish what combinations and conditions may be most effective.

At the end of day 2, there will be a break-out session for members of the Radio-Immunotherapy and Biomarkers Brain Storm Groups of the Elekta Unity Consortium.

We prefer a live meeting, but in case of continuing pandemic issues all possibilities to have (part of) the symposium as an online event are foreseen.

About Nijmegen

Nijmegen is situated on the banks of the Waal, a branch of the Rhine in the region of the ‘Great Rivers’, and a mere 10 kilometers from the German border. Of Roman origin (its name derives from 'Noviomagus' meaning 'new market') the city celebrated its 2000th anniversary in 2005. This makes Nijmegen the oldest city in the Netherlands. Nijmegen was also the imperial residence during the Carolingian period. The 'Valkhof' - ‘Falcon’s Court’ - is the highest point of the city overlooking the river. It was once the site of Charlemagne’s castle. From this vantage point, which is now a scenic park, the typically Dutch polder landscape and rolling hills provide a beautiful panorama.

The Great Rivers marked the northern frontier of the Roman Empire, and no doubt the Romans settled here because of the splendid strategic view of enemy territory across the river. For similarly strategic reasons, subsequent kings and other rulers chose Nijmegen as their place of residence.
