Upcoming Webinar

 

  • 44th Meeting of the Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board (NRSB). June 6, 2024; 1:00 - 5:00 pm EST.  The NRSB welcomes members of the public to join them as they explore topics of (1) the Department of Energy’s plans for disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste, (2) the National Nuclear Security Administration’s support for and updates on medical isotope production without the use of highly enriched uranium, (3) latest scientific advancements on FLASH technology and high-dose rate cancer treatment, and (4) Los Alamos National Laboratory’s nuclear programs relevant for NRSB, including nuclear security, neutron science, radioactive waste management, and securing disused radioactive sources. This hybrid meeting will take place both online and in-person, at the Keck Center in Washington, DC. Registration is required to attend.

Cool Resources

 

  • Radiological Consequences of Fallout from Nuclear Explosions (pdf). Axelsson et al. Report number 2023:05e. In this report, Strålsäkerhetsmyndigheten, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), presents an analysis of the potential radiological consequences of fallout from the nuclear explosions at distances between about 10 kilometers and about 300 kilometers from the explosion, and the effect of various protective actions. The contents of the report constitute a knowledge base and not a ready-made planning basis. However, certain conclusions can be drawn and already taken into account in emergency preparedness planning.

Dosimetry Harmony: Orchestrating Unity in Techniques

September 25-28, 2024

 

EPR Biodose 2024 Meeting.  September 25-28, 2024 at Hirosaki University in Hirosaki, Japan.  This in-person meeting is sponsored by Hirosaki University and the International Association of Biological and EPR Radiation Dosimetry (IABERD).  The theme of the scientific program is “Dosimetry Harmony:  Orchestrating Unity in Techniques” and will include invited speakers and round table discussions covering advanced uses of physical dosimeters in medicine, dosimetry in radiobiology, emergency medical response in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, and how we should use biodosimetry for an unplanned radiation exposure in the short and long term, in addition to cutting edge advances in biodosimetry and retrospective dosimetry submitted from the abstracts that are received.  There will be separate one-day, pre-meeting workshops offered for cytogenetic and EPR dosimetry. More information on the meeting including abstract submission, registration and deadlines are available on the meeting website at https://eprbiodose2024.org
