PRESS LUNCHEON

A press luncheon featuring some of the most newsworthy topics at the meeting will be held in room 401 between 12:00-1:30 PM on Tuesday, July 26. Topics will include 4D proton therapy, lighting up radiation-resistant cancer regions, first clinical trials of a mammography alternative, and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), in which onboard imaging equipment guides radiation more precisely than previously possible during a cancer therapy procedure. Further details will be given in an upcoming news release. RSVP Ben Stein at bstein@aip.org by July 15 if possible.

PRESIDENT'S SYMPOSIUM FEATURES EINSTEIN AND THE WORLD YEAR OF PHYSICS
