Developing a Long-Term Strategy for Low-Dose Radiation Research in the U.S.

November 16, 2021 - November 17, 2021

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This meeting hosted by the National Academies will focus on receiving information from the research community on low dose radiation research priorities and lessons to be learned from managing multidisciplinary programs.

  • What are your views on research priorities for low dose radiation research?
  • How can epidemiology contribute to further understanding risks?
  • Molecular approaches to improve understanding of DNA repair following low dose radiation exposures
  • Advancements in dosimetry to support radiation epidemiology
  • Epigenetic changes and their applications to radiation epidemiology
  • Clonal hematopoiesis and space radiation
  • Techniques used to identify functional elements of the microbiome
  • Opportunities and challenges for epigenetics and microbiome research in low dose radiation exposures
  • Overview of studies of in utero exposure to radiation with emphasis on low doses
  • Limitations of low-dose epidemiological studies
  • Modeling radiation effects including radiation carcinogenesis, normal tissue complications, radioresistance and non-targeted effect
  • Methods and tools to estimate radiation dose in low dose radiation studies of medical, occupational, and environmental exposures
  • Methods to study immune response and its role in cancer development and treatment
  • Modern techniques for mapping cells carrying mutations in normal tissues
