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.
