The 15th International Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA15) was scheduled in Seoul on January 18th and 19th, under the theme “Bridging Radiation Protection Culture and Science – Widening Public Empathy”. Due to the pandemic, it took place online from January 18th to February 5th. Chiara Magni, a PhD student from University of Pavia (and member of the BNCT Communication Task Force!) won the first prize in the Young Scientists & Professionals Award. Her presentation was entitled “How radiation protection issues influence the design of a clinical facility for Accelerator-Based Boron Neutron Capture Therapy”. Congratulations, Chiara! Not only for your excellent work, but also for spreading BNCT in other scientific Societies.
