Annual Meeting of the
Association For Radiation Research 2021

12 -14 July 2021

An integrated virtual and face to face event


We are very pleased to invite you to the Association of Radiation Research meeting for 2021. As usual the meeting will include sessions covering the whole spectrum of radiation research from basic physics and chemistry through to clinical studies. It will be a great opportunity to hear from the experts and network with others in the field at the sessions and during our planned social events. Please note there will be specific support for attendance and involvement of Scientists in Training.

Due to continuing uncertainty surrounding the ongoing Covid-19 situation we have, with regret, made the decision to move ARR 2021 online. The programme on the website has now been updated to reflect this.

Our x-ray irradiators are a simpler, safer and more cost-effective alternative to gamma radioisotope irradiators, with a full line of options and accessories for customization to your specific application requirements.


Conference Organisation

The Annual Meeting of the Association for Radiation Research 2020 is organised on behalf of ARR by Professor Susan Short.

Professor Short is a clinical oncologist with a specialist research interest in treating adults with primary brain tumours. She trained at King’s College London and took up a post as Senior Lecturer at University College London in 2004, where she ran a translational research group as CRUK Clinician Scientist and Senior Fellow. She moved to Leeds in 2012 as professor of Clinical Oncology and Neuro-Oncology and currently leads the brain cancer research section at Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology.
