The Ottawa Medical Physics Institute (OMPI) will celebrate 30 years of collaboration and innovation in medical physics research with three special events, culminating in a half-day symposium at Carleton University on Nov. 7 – the International Day of Medical Physics and the birthday of pioneering physicist, Marie Curie.
**Network. Collaborate. Celebrate!**
Our symposium to mark OMPI’s 30th anniversary will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7 (International Day of Medical Physics) at Carleton University.
This is the OMPI event of the year for everyone from OMPI members and medical physics graduate students to others with a casual interest in applications of physics to medicine. We especially look forward to seeing former OMPI members and alumni for this half-day event that will be an occasion for networking, collaboration, and a bit of a party.
OMPI is a regional network of clinical, research, and academic medical physicists tied together by a passion for research. It is a Carleton University Research Centre of a unique flavour and connects three essential foundations of medical physics in Ottawa: the federal government labs, which are unique in Canada, clinical facilities for imaging and cancer therapy, which are some of the most comprehensive in Canada, and Carleton University’s Department of Physics.
Connections within OMPI have fostered an intricate web of research collaborations and provide the foundation for M.Sc. and Ph.D. graduate education programs.
