Training and Education
The JBLC is positioned to participate in the education and training of the next generation of radiation science leaders. The JBLC will establish PhD and postdoctoral fellowships relevant to radiation sciences supporting both scholars with PhDs, and when appropriate, to those pursuing relevant clinical fellowships in Harvard hospitals to support their research years in radiation sciences. A keystone of the JBLC’s educational programming has been the JBL Symposium. The annual Symposium attracts more than 200 people and continues to be an outstanding event for world-class scientists to introduce exciting and emerging areas of research. It provides a unique platform for scientists to exchange knowledge in the field of radiation, stress response and relevant areas. We expect the JBLC will also offer short training courses covering topics relevant to radiation research and an open bi-weekly seminar series available to the whole Harvard community.
