Conference on Normal Tissue Radiation Effects and Countermeasures (CONTREC), a Winthrop Rockefeller Conference
May 6, 2015 · 2:00 PM – May 9, 2015 · 10:00 AM
The Conference on Normal Tissue Radiation Effects and Countermeasures (CONTREC), a Winthrop Rockefeller Conference, will address three topics in the field of radiation injury: side effects of radiation during and after cancer therapy; radiological and nuclear emergencies; and exposure to radiation in space. CONTREC will bring together top national and international researchers to share their work, while also showcasing the groundbreaking work at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ Division of Radiation Health.
The conference will be held May 6-9, 2015, in partnership with the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain and is made possible by generous support from the Winthrop Rockefeller Charitable Trust with additional major sponsorships from the UAMS College of Pharmacy, the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute and the Arkansas Biosciences Institute. The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute was established in 2005 by the University of Arkansas System. By integrating the resources and expertise of the University of Arkansas System with the legacy and ideas of Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, this educational institute and member of the International Association of Conference Centers creates an atmosphere where collaboration and change can thrive.
