Nadia Benabdallah wins the PHENIICS Doctoral School Award


Nadia Benabdallah has won, on Monday May 28th,  the PHENIICS Doctoral School Award for her thesis "Optimization of dosimetry in alphatherapy by a multi-scale approach: application to the treatment of bone metastases with Ra-223", which she defended on December 21, 2017. Nadia Benabdallah received €1,000 in recognition of her work, which has made it possible to grasp the various aspects of Ra-223 internal dosimetry and which offers tools to go further in customizing the dosimetry of new alpha-emitter radiopharmaceuticals, a field that is expanding rapidly.

In 2015, Nadia Benabdallah won the award for best poster from the SFRP ("French Society for Radioprotection") in the first year of her thesis. In 2017 she earned the Travel Award for Young Researchers at the Targeted Alpha Therapy (TAT) conference in Japan and the First Place Henri Jammet Prize at the National Congress of the SFRP for the quality and originality of her work.

She will represent the SFRP to compete for the Young Professional Award at the European IRPA Congress to take place in The Hague from June 4 to 8, 2018.
