We would like to celebrate our very successful cooperation in Medical Physics over the past 15 years with two hybrid events together with our local partners, the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (UC) and the Clínica Alemana de Santiago de Chile (CAS). Since 2009 the topic "Medical Physics" is part of the project "Centers of Excellence in Research and Teaching" at the Heidelberg Center Latin America (HCLA) in Santiago de Chile which is funded for 15 years by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

This first hybrid event is this workshop on "Radioresistance from an experimental/preclinical point of view", jointly organized by DKFZ and UC, taking place on April 23rd 2024. Our second event is a hybrid symposium about "Radioresistance?" that is jointly organized by CAS, taking place on April 25th 2024. More information about the symposium is available here. Speakers from all institutes from Chile and Heidelberg contribute to both events to celebrate our cooperation.
