Welcome to the website of the Netherlands Society for Radiobiology

The Netherlands Society for Radiobiology (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Radiobiologie, NVRB) was founded on the 2nd February of 1959 in Utrecht to support radiobiology in its broadest sense in the Netherlands. Open scientific discussion and networking are stimulated by organisation of scientific meetings and conferences in the field of radiobiology, ranging from characterisation of molecular events after ionizing radiation to the development of new strategies for clinical radiotherapy. Young investigators in radiobiology or related fields are particularly encouraged to become members.
