40 years. 40 memories. 40 weeks

My very first contact with ESTRO was at a teaching course held in Copenhagen by Dr Jan Willem Leer in the early 90s. The great teaching and pleasant networking allowed me to fully appreciate ESTRO as a Society. The defining ESTRO event for my career development was the attendance of one of the early IMRT-courses which provided solid foundations and pushed my interests toward the IMRT and IGRT field even further.  ESTRO’s strong interest in tackling all Physics topics in the field of radiotherapy made it an essential platform for me!

Things came full circle when I was asked to codirect the IMRT course with a group of wonderful people, which I have now codirected for the last 7 years with great pleasure. I ended my IMRT adventure this year while acting as the local host in Modena, the city of Lambrusco and Ferrari in Italy.
