PRISMAP School on radionuclide production


Overview of the Summer School

Radionuclide production is the first step in the production of any radiopharmaceutical product. It is governed by many physical and technical aspects, most of them highly intertwined with one another. In this school, we shall go back to the basics, always keeping the final goal in perspective, to better understand how to guide ourselves in the growing field of medical radionuclides.

Note that this school precedes the EURORIB Conference, which will be held the week after at Center Parcs De Vossemeren in Lommel, offering a unique chance to introduce yourself to those topics prior to joining this conference.


Target audience / Language

This school is aimed at all young researchers (mainly PhD, postdocs, but also advanced Master students) interesting in the field of radionuclide production. Interest in their medical application is an added value. All lectures and laboratories will be in English.

Learning outcomes

  • Understanding the full chain in the production and logistics of radionuclides for medical applications.
  • Being able to determine how to produce a given radionuclide and assess where the challenges are.
  • Link together all the actors in the production of radionuclides to best know whom to reach to support one’s own research.
