ISIT 2015

The International Symposium on Ion Therapy (ISIT) is an annual workshop bringing together global leaders in the nascent field of heavy particle therapy to share emerging advances in patient treatment, clinical trials, technology, and basic science.

The International Symposium on Ion Therapy 2015 was held October 15-16 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. The event included presentations by leaders of heavy ion facilities in Europe and Asia, as well as experts in heavy ion clinical research, basic science research, physics and technology. With almost 200 attendees, ISIT in its second year has assumed an important role in bringing together thought leaders at the intersection of science and cancer care, as a precursor to the development of a national heavy ion center in the U.S.
