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.

Symposium: “Proton Therapy: clinical, physical and biological aspects”

In line with the recent dynamic developments in proton therapy in The Netherlands, NVRB is eager to stimulate research and translational activities leading to better understanding and exploitation of this cutting-edge modality. To this end, NVRB is organizing a one-day symposium devoted to clinical, physical and biological aspects of proton therapy.
