Radiation Protection, Safeguarding of European citizens

Funded under: FP6-EURATOM


This four-paged leaflet gives an overview over Radiation protection which is highly multi-disciplinary and covers a diverse range of issues. The main focus of research over the past decade and for the foreseeable future is the better quantification and understanding of the risks of radiation at levels typical of those occuring in the workplace and the environment. This will be achieved by a combination of cellular and molecular biology research on the interaction between radiation and molecules (DNA), cells and organs, and epidemiological studies of exposed populations.
