Farewell Symposium Schlegel 31 May 2019


Wolfgang Schlegel is well known to many colleagues worldwide for his numerous pioneering contributions to the field of radiotherapy physics. Under his leadership at DKFZ, many new technologies for radiotherapy were developed, which had significant impact on the precision and effectiveness of cancer treatment with ionizing radiation. Among them are the introduction of linac-based stereotactic radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiotherapy, multi-criterial optimization and image guided radiotherapy, to mention just the most prominent examples.

We are glad to invite you to an exciting symposium, with talks by some of his colleagues and friends, who will present their personal view on the years they spent with Wolfgang and on the research they performed together.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Heidelberg.


31 May 2019, 2:30 - 5pm
