CONCERT Course in Radiation Research
- The course "InterRad: Interdisciplinary Radiation Research" will introduce into various disciplines contributing to radiation research. Insights to physical, chemical, biological and epidemiological fundamentals in radiation research will be provided.
- The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will organise the European Training Course in Radiation Research, sponsored by the "CONCERT-European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research".
- It is intended for MSc/PhD students registered at an EU Uni or scientists working in an EU country.
- No fees are charged. Registration is mandatory.
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will organise an European Training Course in Radiation Research, sponsored by the CONCERT-European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research.
The course will introduce into various disciplines contributing to radiation research. Insights to physical, chemical, biological and epidemiological fundamentals in radiation research will be provided. These basic principles will be completed by presenting interdisciplinary approaches like molecular epidemiology, biobanking, and micro and nanodosimetry.
The course will help to sensitize to the feasibility, potential and limitations of experimental assays and the need for implementation of multidisciplinary research approaches.
All lessons will be given by expert scientists from the BfS, the PTB (National Metrology Institute) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München. In addition a one day excursion for all participants is arranged.
There will be lectures in:
- Basics in Radiation Physics
- Basics in Radiation Biology
- Basics in Radiation Epidemiology
- Micro- and Nanodosimetry
- Molecular Epidemiology
- Applied Radiation Science
- Basics in Statistics
Practical training and demonstrations
Practical training and demonstrations include
Biological assays to quantify cellular radiation damage / repair / misrepair:
- Comet assay
- Gamma H2AX assay
- Cytogenetic assays
Physical detection to trace radioactivity
- in food products
- in the environment
- in the human body
- Proteomics (Dige technique)
- Emergency Preparedness
The course is intended for MSc/PhD students registered at an EU Uni or scientists working in an EU country. The maximum number of participants is twelve.
No fees are charged. Registration is mandatory. Contact: Dr. Maria Gomolka (E-Mail: email@example.com ).
Application deadline: Feb 19th 2018. Information about acceptance: March 5th 2018.
- Letter of application
- CV, description of the scientific career
- Supporting letter from the supervisor/head of laboratory (only students)
