5 – Research
Shape and promote a strategic research agenda for radiation protection in medicine
◦Re-balance radiation research budgets.
◦Strengthen investigations in low-dose health effects.
◦Study mechanisms for individual differences in radiosensitivity and hypersensitivity to radiation.
◦ Identify biological markers specific to ionizing radiations.
◦Advance research in specialized areas of radiation effects: deterministic effects, cardiovascular effects, etc.
◦Improve methods for organ dose assessment.
