RERF is scheduled to hold an international workshop
An international workshop will be held at Hiroshima Laboratory of Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF), as follows.
Title: "Filling a gap between epidemiology and biology––Biologically–
based modeling of radiation–induced carcinogenesis"
Time and Date: March 22 (9:00–17:00) / March 23 (9:00–12:30), 2018
Venue: Auditorium, Radiation Effects Research Foundation, Hiroshima Access
Objective: To invite world–leading experts in carcinogenesis modeling and radiation to share their findings and experiences and discuss current problems and future research directions toward understanding the nature of radiation-induced carcinogenesis.
