As of January 1, 2023, Dr. Peter Sminia, Department of Radiation Oncology, Amsterdam UMC has been appointed President of the European Radiation Research Society (ERRS).

The European Radiation Research Society (ERRS) is a non-profit organization that aims to promote radiation research through the sharing of scientific knowledge. It is a lively scientific society with over 350 members from all over Europe and abroad, with an energetic council and dedicated delegates from almost all European countries.

The ERRS organizes annual scientific meetings that are specifically tailored to enable young investigators to share their data and acquire information on fundamental aspects of radiation and novel developments in radiation research. To facilitate the attendance and participation of early-stage researchers, ERRS grants travel awards to selected applicants. The annual events are uniquely suited to generate new ideas and collaborations in the field of Radiation Research.

The research spectrum of the ERRS is broad: from space to environmental radiation, molecular and cellular radiobiology, radiation physics, radiation protection, radiation chemistry, dosimetry, dose-rate effects, radiopharmaceuticals, nuclear medicine, non-ionizing radiation, particle irradiation, radio sensitizing agents and modalities, preclinical, translational and clinical radiotherapy.

I am very honored, and it is my great pleasure to serve the ERRS as President!
Dr. Peter Sminia
Department of Radiation Oncology, Amsterdam UMC.

Cancer Center Amsterdam congratulates Dr. Sminia on his appointment and wishes him success in leading ERRS and moving the field of radiation research forward.
