Prof. Richard Pötter, Chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology introduced Prof. Dietmar Georg on a very personal and professional level, by outlining the importance of the first professorship for Medical Radiation Physics in Austria and highlightening the career of Dietmar Georg, and his rich contributions to the achievements of the Department of Radiation Oncology.
In his inaugural lecture entitled "Bildgeführte Radiotherapie: Was man nicht sieht, kann man nicht treffen" Dietmar Georg first gave some historical insights into the discipline of Medical Radiation Physics and his personal history in this field. He continued by presenting an overview of the broad spectrum of research performed by his group that is very much linked with the overall vision of the CDL, and underlined the importance of knowledge transfer towards the next generation of researchers.
Prof. Wolfgang Dörr, who was introduced by his long lasting colleague, mentor and former head of the Department of Radiation Oncology in Dresden, Thomas Herrmann. Thomas Herrmann traveled to this event from his hometown Dresden, where he worked together with Wolfgang Dörr for several years. The inaugural lecture of Wolfgang Dörr was entitled "Translationale Strahlenbiologie: Was man sieht und worauf man schauen sollte". He presented the link between pre-clinical and clinical radiobiological research with focus on ion beam therapy.
We wish both Professors all the best in their future academic and personal life.
