MultIChem Workshop "Irradiation-driven chemistry: Multiscale approach"

March 24, 2022

The Workshop "Irradiation-driven chemistry: Multiscale approach" organized within the COST Action CA20129 MultIChem took place on March 14-15, 2022 at the EPFL campus in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The Workshop aimed to discuss the recent achievements and current challenges in the multiscale investigation of radiation-induced phenomena behind ion-beam cancer therapy (IBCT), ranging from nanoscale mechanisms of radiation-induced biomolecular damage to radiotherapy treatment planning.

The workshop brought together expert theoreticians and leaders in computational modeling, experimentalists and radiotherapy practitioners studying irradiation-driven damage of biomolecular systems and exploiting this knowledge in the development of IBCT. Therefore, the workshop will provide an interdisciplinary and intersectoral forum to discuss the current state-of-the-art; theoretical, experimental and technological challenges underlying modern radiotherapies of cancer; and possible multiscale computational solutions to address these challenges.
