The second call for user projects is now open!

We are pleased to announce that our second call for user projects is now open, and for this call we have added 7 new radionuclides to our portfolio.

The current cut-off date is 30 September 2022. Hearings with all user projects passing the eligibility threshold will take place on 2 November 2022.

The project application consists of two parts:

  • Part A - is completed through the application form. It includes the request for radionuclides and application services, a project overview and administrative information.
  • Part B - contains a description of the proposed scientific user project, to be uploaded as a PDF file. It will be submitted together with the application form.

For practical information on preparing and submitting a proposal for the PRISMAP user calls, please refer to our guide for applicants.

You can also find the answers to the most frequently asked questions about PRISMAP services in our FAQ page.

And do not hesitate to contact us through our Helpdesk if you want to discuss the feasibility of your project.

We look forward to receiving your projects!

Call for Papers: IAEA’s International Symposium on Trends in Radiopharmaceuticals 2023

Interested contributors have until 30 September 2022 to submit abstracts for the IAEA’s International Symposium on Trends in Radiopharmaceuticals (ISTR-2023), to be held from 17 to 21 April 2023 at the IAEA headquarters in Vienna, Austria.

The Symposium will bring together (radio)chemists, (radio)pharmacists, biologists, physicists, technologists, medical researchers, policy makers, health regulators, educators, and other professionals working in the fields of production and uses of medical radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals.

Discussion topics will include challenges and opportunities in the development, production and uses of diagnostic, therapeutic and theranostic radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals, and regulatory and licensing issues. Discussions will also cover current needs in terms of continuous education in radiopharmaceutical sciences, and certification and training methodologies for radiopharmacists.

Attendance at the conference is free of charge and there is no registration fee.

Open position for a research project leader on radiation induced health effects at SCK CEN (Mol, Belgium)

The radiobiology unit of SCK CEN, Mol, Belgium is looking for a research project leader to contribute to the research on the effects of radiation therapy on human health with a particular focus on the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. This project leader will participate in radiation-induced health research development of strategies to identify and implement (novel) sensitive technologies for assessing disease initiation and long-term health effects as well as (individual) responses to radiation therapy.

Happy International Women’s Day! For a diverse, equitable and inclusive world.

PRISMAP believes in gender equality, diversity, and inclusion. That is why 42% of the PRISMAP consortium is made up of women, and we have included the role of the Diversity Vanguard, as part of our Coordination Team, to ensure diversity and inclusion in our project.
We will continue to take action against stereotypes and discrimination. 

Happy International Women's Day!

Don't miss the PRISMAP Education Seminar "Standardisation and Harmonisation” on 8 February 2022, from 13h00 to 17h00 CET

This education seminar is organised by the PRISMAP standards and harmonisation group and will give insight in the many components needed to better understand translating novel non-conventional radionuclides into radiopharmaceuticals for clinical application.

Thierry Stora, PRISMAP coordinator, will participate in the EURADOS webinar: Challenges and developments in the field of therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals, on Thursday 20 January 2022 at 15h30 CET. Don't miss it!

In 2020 EURADOS published an update of its Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The updated SRA contains 5 visions which cover the main fields in radiation dosimetry. For each vision challenges and subsequently more detailed research lines are defined. Vision 4: “Towards integrated personalized dosimetry in medical applications” covers the challenges of patient dosimetry in nuclear medicine focussing on both internal dosimetry for pre-clinical development and evaluation of radiopharmaceuticals emitting alpha, beta and auger radiation and implementation of internal dosimetry in clinical practice. Based on SRA vision 4, EURADOS Working Group 7 “internal dosimetry” composes a task group focussing on the development of a roadmap towards a dosimetry model for radionuclide therapy which should provide guidance on the role of EURADOS to address internal dosimetry for therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals.
