Mark your calendars!!

To address the needs of the food, phytosanitary, agribusiness, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical industries, the National Center for Electron Beam Research will be organizing a new  BYOP (Bring Your Own Product) format Hands-on Workshop in eBeam Technologies April 16-20th, 2018.  Session 1 (April 16th, 1 PM - April 18th 12 noon) will focus on the use of eBeam technology in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries while Session 2 (April 18th, 1 PM - April 20th, noon) will focus on the use of the eBeam technology for food, pet food and phytosanitary applications.  Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their products (medical device/pet food/food/fresh produce) so that they could be included in the hands-on exercises. The focus of the hands-on exercises will be to provide one of a kind in depth hands on experience in performing eBeam dosing experiments, dose-mapping experiments and if need be, eBeam dose tolerance exposures.   You may attend either Session 1 or Session 2 or both. The cost of attending either Session 1 or Session 2 is $850. The fee to attend both sessions will be $1600. The registration fee covers all workshop materials, lunches, coffee breaks and a workshop dinner. Hotel costs will be the responsibility of the attendees. A list of hotels with workshop rates is listed on the registration website .  


Who Should Attend:
