Scientific workshop: Natural background radiation and cancer risks in children: Tuesday, 2018/06/05 - Wednesday, 2018/06/06

It is well established from studies of atomic bomb survivors and other exposed groups that medium to high doses of ionising radiation can induce cancer. Furthermore, children are known to be more sensitive to radiation. However, the direct epidemiological investigation of cancer risks associated with low dose radiation (<100 mSv) remains a major challenge.

This scientific workshop will bring together researchers in the field and interested parties from around the world to discuss how epidemiological studies of exposure to background radiation and risk of childhood cancer can improve our understanding of the effects of low-dose ionising radiation.
