ESTRO - Jack Fowler - University of Wisconsin award

ESTRO - Jack Fowler - University of Wisconsin award is an annual award of 1000 € which is given for the best abstract submitted by a junior working in the field of radiobiology, radiation physics, radiation oncology or radiation technology.

In even years the award is given to a radiation oncologist or radiobiologist at the ESTRO Congress.  In uneven years the award is given to a physicist or radiation technologist at the ESTRO Forum.

For the eligibility criteria, submission elements and deadlines, please visit the ESTRO events website.
