A primary task of the CMCRC is education. Therefore, we have designed and implemented a web-based Radiobiology Methods teaching tool. The purpose of this “virtual textbook” is to provide to the general scientific and educational community a clear overview of radiation biology and radiation dosimetry, and to carry out ongoing updates in the chapters and interact with readers during the evolution of new advances by programs of the CMCRC.
