Scarborough was home of the Society of Radiological Protection’s 2019 Annual Conference. The theme of this year’s event was “The Art and Science of Radiation Protection,” and over two hundred people were in attendance.

Founders Medal

Jill Reay has been awarded one of the highest accolades from the Society of Radiological Protection: the Founders Medal. This is awarded to those who have made significant contributions to Radiation Protection.

Young Professionals

Aurora was proud to have two presentations accepted and presented in the SRP’s Young Professionals competition.

Mystery at the Dump

Mystery at the Dump by Joel Garner describes his first experience with Aurora, weeks after completing his PhD. The presentation tells of the work involving following the mysterious trail of radioactive material, with the help of an unlikely feline friend.

Design and Verification of a High Energy Proton Beam Facility

This presentation by Fearnley Evison illustrates how the shielding for a high energy proton therapy facility was designed, facilitated with MCNP radiation transport modelling software. Once constructed, the shielding was verified employing Aurora’s Shielding Integrity Testing service.

Award Winners: Best Exhibitor

It was an enormous compliment to have been voted the event’s best exhibitor. A big thankyou to everybody who came to visit our stand, engage in our games and share conversations with us during the week. Congratulations to the winners of the Aurora competition: Adam Welsh and Shelly Matthews.
