The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) of the United Kingdom has, since 1990, carried out a number of research projects in the field of radiation protection on behalf of the European Commission (DG XII). The NRPB has published a book, entitled "European advances in radiological protection 1993-1995", outlining the achievements of a number of projects carried out in the period 1993 to 1995.

The book covers projects in the following areas:

- Inhalation and ingestion of radionuclides;
- Measurement of spectral and angular distribution of external radiations in the workplace and implications for personal dosimetry;
- Induction of chromosomal changes in human and rodent cells by accelerated charged particles: early and late radiation effects;
- Dosimetry and effects of parental, fetal and neonatal exposure to incorporated radionuclides and external radiation;
- Radon sources, models and countermeasures;
- Epidemiological studies and tables;
- Studies related to the expression of the detriment associated with radiation exposure;
- Reduction of the risk of late effects from incorporated radionuclides;
- Medical dose assessment and evaluation of risk.
