It is my great pleasure to invite you to take part in the VII Troitsk Conference on Medical Physics that will be held in the science city of Troitsk (Moscow) on June 15-18, 2020.
The development of natural sciences has made it even more obvious that the use of novel physical methods in medicine is inevitable. It has become impossible today to perform high precision diagnostics and effective treatment without them. The expertise of medical physicist is required not only at the stage of research and development, but also in the process of treatment.
The Institutes of Troitsk have historically played active part in fundamental and applied research in the field of medical physics. That is why the initiative to hold biannually scientific meetings that would not only bring together physicists, but medical specialists was highly welcomed and the I Troitsk Scientific Conference took place in 2004. The Conference is traditionally organized by the Institute for Photonoic Technologies of the Crystallography and Photonics Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences (former Institute for Laser and Information Technologies Problems of the RAS), Institute for Spectroscopy of the RAS and the Administration of Troitsk. The Conference historically enjoys the support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
In 2020 the scientific program of TCMP-7 will embrace a wide range of topics in the field of biomedical photonics, nanotechnologies for medical applications, new biomedical methods, equipment and materials, regenerative technologies and tissue engineering, nuclear and beam diagnostics and therapy. A Symposium on MRI, School for young scientists on medical physics and an exhibition of scientific and medical equipment and materials will take place in the frames of the Conference. Oral presentations recommended by the Program Committee will be published in the 11th issue of Izvestia RAS. Physics Series (indexed in Scopus). The Book of Abstracts will be published in a digital format and indexed in the RISC.
The Organizing Committee of TCMP-7 invited leading scientists from Russia, USA, Great Britain, Germany, China and other countries to give plenary and topical lectures. It is particularly satisfying that with every new conference we see more talks given by young scientists and talks on practical application of innovative methods and technologies, equipment and materials that were presented earlier.
Troitsk conferences show the growing role of medical physics for the development of medicine, for the technological breakthrough in healthcare. Close cooperation between physicists and medical specialists lays the foundation for their strong scientific and practical connections.
I am confident that the forthcoming VII Troitsk Conference on Medical Physics will continue the tradition of the previous scientific meetings and will open the way to practical medicine for the most effective and scientifically proven technologies for diagnostics and treatment.
Chairman of the Board of the RFBR, Academician of the RAS Vladislav Ya. Panchenko
