CRUK–ARR Radiation Research Conference 2023

CRUK-AAR Radiation Research Conference. 4-6 June 2023, University of Glasgow. Logo of CRUK, in partnership with The Association for Radiation Research

CRUK – AAR Radiation Research Conference 2023

We are delighted to be partnering with the Association for Radiation Research to develop a three-day conference which will tackle some of the biggest challenges in radiotherapy.

Our intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from the CRUK RadNet network and wider international radiation research community can come together to showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.

Learning objectives

Our multidisciplinary programme will include sessions covering the whole spectrum of radiation research from basic science through translational and clinical studies, providing the attendees with knowledge, tools and techniques to apply to their own research.

There will be ample time throughout the conference to network with peers, view posters and continue thought-provoking conversations outside of the agenda.


This event is relevant for all academics and scientists across the radiation research pipeline, and in all career stages.

There will be opportunities throughout the conference to network with peers, view posters and continue thought-provoking conversations outside of the agenda. Join us and be part of the conversation for change!
