The Summer School will cover the field of radiolanthanides from the general properties of the lanthanide elements, to the production, purification and medical applications of radiolanthanides. The lanthanide elements have very similar chemical properties with only small differences through the series; their radioactive isotopes offer a wide range of half-lives combined with all possible types of radioactive decays, making them stand out in the radionuclide chart as excellent candidates for theranostic applications. However, their chemical similarities give rise to challenges when it comes to separating them from one another. In this course, the participants will discover a series of radiolanthanides and learn how to perform some challenging separation processes.
PhD students, postdocs, junior scientists or technicians interested in radiolanthanides for medical applications.
The course targets participants who have an interest in radiolanthanide production and separation techniques. No previous experience with radioisotope purification or radiolabeling techniques is required, but basic knowledge about radiation and daily laboratory practices will be encouraged.
The summer school is free of charge.
Registration is closed.
In order to provide a good training experience to everyone during the laboratory exercises, we decided to limit the number of participants to 9 people.
The organizing committee will select the applicants and inform them about the decision by 5 April 2023.
Accommodation needs to be booked by the participants. We recommend: The Scandic hotel, not far from Roskilde station, access to Risø building 202 by 15 minutes bus ride with line 600S (stop “Roskilde station Sygehuset”, 3-4 busses per hour) + 15 minutes walking.
The course will provide theoretical classes, which include:
It will also provide on-site practical training, which includes:
The Organizing Committee involves the following members:
