The Regaud Award Lecture is a tribute to Claudius Regaud. Born in Lyon in 1870 and in 1911 he described the principles of fractionation from his work on the testis and in 1927 the need for quality and a multidisciplinary approach in cancer care. With Coutard, he introduced the principles of fractionation in clinical practice, a good example of translational research - "observe and translate" was his message.
