A future for radioecology in Europe
ID: 36453
Start date: 2006-10-01, End date: 2008-09-30
European and national funding for radioecology was substantial after the Chernobyl accident, but has since declined. In the last decade, the number of radioecologists has been steadily reducing with significant gaps occurring in many countries in the expertise needed to cover...

DNA damage responses, Genomic instability and Radiation-Induced Cancer: The problem of risk at low and protracted doses (RISC-RAD)
ID: 508842
Start date: 2004-01-01, End date: 2008-10-31
Radiation protection requires a thorough understanding of low dose ionising radiation. Currently extrapolation from high doses is necessary to estimate the effects of low doses. Furthermore, it is critically important to have an appreciation of the variation in individual resp...

Radiotherapy for breast cancer and subsequent risk of cardiovascular events
ID: 12796
Start date: 2005-08-01, End date: 2009-10-31
There are over a million survivors of breast cancer in Europe today and this number is increasing rapidly due to increased incidence, improvements in treatment, and screening programmes. A recent overview of radiotherapy for early breast cancer showed that mortality from breas...

Environmental Risk from Ionising Contaminants: Assessment and Management (ERICA)
ID: 508847
Start date: 2004-03-01, End date: 2007-02-28
The objective of ERICA is to provide an integrated approach to scientific, managerial and societal issues cerned with the environmental effects of taminants emitting ionising radiation, with emphasis on biota and ecosystems. The final outcome of the project will be the ERICA i...

Southern urals radiation risk research
ID: 516478
Start date: 2005-08-01, End date: 2009-12-31
The aim of the SOUL project is to quantify risks of late health effects associated with low-dose rate exposure to plutonium, strontium and external gamma radiation. This will be done by improving, updating and analysing dosimetric and health data for the Mayak worker cohort (M...

Radiation exposures at an early age: impact of genotype on breast cancer risk
ID: 12926
Start date: 2005-06-01, End date: 2009-11-30
The relative risks of breast cancer for women exposed to external radiation in childhood, adolescence and early reproductive years are among the highest known radiation related risks for any cancer type. A number of genes increase breast cancer susceptibility and are known to ...

Non-targeted effects of ionising radiation
ID: 36465
Start date: 2006-09-01, End date: 2010-12-31
The universality of the target theory of radiation-induced effects is challenged by observations on non-targeted effects such as bystander effects, genomic instability and adaptive response. Essential features of non-targeted effects are that they do not require direct nuclear...

Quantification of cancer and non-cancer risks associated with multiple chronic radiation exposures: epidemiological studies, organ dose calculation and risk assessment
ID: 516483
Start date: 2005-07-01, End date: 2009-10-31
Radiation protection guidelines are mainly based on studies of populations exposed to external radiation. This project regroups major European studies able to evaluate long term health effects after internal exposure to radionuclides (radon, uranium, plutonium). Large cohort a...

Safety and efficacy for new techniques and imaging using new equipment to support European legislation.
ID: 12909
Start date: 2005-02-01, End date: 2007-04-30
Health services in the EU are a growing fraction of national wealth, typically 10% of GDP. Within this radiological imaging is gaining increasing prominence and now accounts for up to 10% of hospital revenue and 15% of capital equipment budgets, thereby identifying it as an...

A Coordinated Network for Radiation Dosimetry
ID: 12684
Start date: 2005-01-01, End date: 2008-03-31
This project involves two main activities to maintain and enhance competence in radiation protection dosimetry. It analyses the options for sustainable networks linking research actors and end users and it coordinates research into measurements and calculations for radiation...
