Eugene Robinson Award is presented each year to an investigator who has made outstanding contributions to hyperthermic oncology. Dr. Wessalowski practices at the Clinic for Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Clinical Oncology at the Heinrich-Heine-University (HHU) located in Düsseldorf, Germany. He is honored for his work in pioneering caring and innovative cancer treatment solutions for children and his continuing advacements of hyperthermia best practices.  HHU uses the Pyrexar BSD-500, BSD-2000 and the BSD-2000 3D/MR Hyperthermia systems.

Hahn Award is presented every other year to an investigator whose research has contributed in a significant way to new clinical applications in thermal therapy. Professor Diederich is the Director of Clinical Hyperthermia Physics and Thermal Therapy Research at the University of California, San Francisco. The Pyrexar BSD-500 and BSD-2000 hyperthermia systems are in practice at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

About STM
Founded in 1986, the Society of Thermal Medicine is a premier, international scientific forum for fostering interaction and innovation in the study of biological, physical and medical applications of thermal therapy for cancer and other diseases and for facilitating a greater basic understanding of the role of temperature in cellular and molecular function.

estro38 Dr. Sennewald Medizintechnik, Pyrexar's European distribution partner,  has brought together an impressive program of clinicians to talk about hyperthermia's role in the treatment of cancer, at this years ESTRO 38 (European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology).  The luncheon symposium titled "Hyperthermia in the age of personalized oncology" will be held Saturday, April 27th and is open to all ESTRO attendees (space is limited).

ABOUT ESTRO

Founded in 1980, ESTRO, the European SocieTy for Radiotherapy & Oncology, is a non-profit and scientific organization that fosters the role of Radiation Oncology in order to improve patients’ care in the multimodality treatment of cancer. ESTRO 38 is being held in Milan, Italy, April 26th - 30th, 2019 at the Milan Convention Center.

It is a busy Spring for Pyrexar at the upcoming Conference Events in the US and Europe.  These conferences are a gathering of the best in radiation oncology and hyperthermia experts and an excellent resource for those interested in the field of thermal oncology.  We will be exhibiting, either directly or via our distribution partners, at the following events

Society of Thermal Medicine Annual MeetingEuropean Society of Hyperthermic Oncology Annual Meeting Spanish Society of Radiation Oncology Annual MeetingAmerican Brachytherapy Society Annual Meeting

The 36th Annual Meeting of the Society for Thermal Medicine, 33rd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology, 20th Congress of the Spanish Society of Radiation Oncology, and the 2019 American Brachytherapy Society Annual Meeting will provide an arena for presentations of latest data, concepts, and breakthroughs in our ever-expanding understanding radiation oncology and thermal medicine in the context of engineering, physics, materials science, and biology.
