Kent Riley Award

The Kent Riley Award was established in memory of our excellent colleague and good friend Kent Riley, who left us prematurely in 2014 at the young age of 43. It was first announced in 2015, in the frame of the 8th Young Researchers BNCT Meeting (8YBNCT) at Pavia. Since then, winners of the Kent Riley Award are presented at the closing ceremony of every YBNCT meeting. The Kent Riley award is obtained by those young researchers in BNCT who, in the judgement of the Review Committee of the YBNCT congresses, deliver the best presentation (oral or poster) of original scientific work.
