Microbeam Training Course


The RARAF microbeam training course at Columbia University's Nevis Laboratory in Irvington, New York is designed to provide a “pipeline” of researchers interested in the use and development of microbeam facilities for research in biology, radiation biology, and radiation physics.

Sponsored by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), the three-day course is offered to a limited group of scientists, selected by an open competitive application process. Application to the program is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty with an interest in the use and development of microbeam facilities. Both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens may apply to the program.

This intense program is taught by leading Columbia University biologists and physicists who are pioneers in the development and use of microbeam technologies.

The scientific director for the RARAF Mirobeam Training Course is Dr. Marcelo E. Vazquez, M.D., P.D.  Dr. Vazquez is Associate Professor at the Radiation Medicine Department, Loma Linda University.
