REQUITE meeting in Maastricht

We can look back on a productive Congress in Maastricht.  The fourth Annual REQUITE meeting was held on Monday 11th July (afternoon) and Tuesday 12th July followed by the Radiogenomics consortium meeting on Wednesday 13th July.The work of the past year and the first research results were presented and analyzed and new actionpoints were made. New upcoming projects were also presented. There was plenty of opportunity for engaging discussions and to exchange knowledge.


11-13 July 2016: Annual REQUITE and Radiogenomics Consortium Meeting in Maastricht.

The 4th Annual REQUITE Meeting and the 8th Annual Meeting of the Radiogenomics Consortium will take place from 11 - 13 July, 2016 in Maastricht, the Netherlands and is hosted by MAASTRO-Clinic.

Many of the researchers involved in the REQUITE project are also part of the Radiogenomics consortium. A good reason to combine both yearly meetings at one moment of the year in the same venue, giving the involved people the opportunity to attend both meetings.
