Workshop: Drawing lessons from stem cells and animal models outside the radiation field
June 13, 2014

Scope

 

This workshop is financially supported by the EU-FP7-OPERRA (Open Project for European Radiation Research Area) activities. Long-term animal studies have played fundamental roles for studies on radiation effects providing important complementary data to those obtained from human epidemiological studies.

Aim of the workshop

  • To integrate research activities outside the radiation protection field to promote continuing development of suitable whole animal models for radiation carcinogenesis and non- cancer diseases at low doses which bear clear relationships to human diseases.
  • To integrate current knowledge on stem cells models into radiobiological studies at low doses.
