Our researchers have returned from the 60th annual American Association of Physics in Medicine (AAPM) meeting held this year in Nashville, Tennessee. This was the largest cohort of invited speakers we’ve had for the conference to date, with many researchers featured in the ‘science highlights’ section of the conference. Two ‘Best In Physics’ titles were awarded to Dr Tess Reynolds and Dr Brendan Whelan.

The conference gave opportunities for us to strengthen bonds with other researchers, as well as industry partners and vendors.

We congratulate our team for their outstanding presentations, a testament to the hard work they put in.
