Environmental Radiobiology PhD course
The aim of the course is to give students an overview of the fundamental principles of radiobiology, but within the context of effects on wildlife. The course covers both the history and the state-of-the-art of our knowledge on the biological effects of radiation on humans, including how recent studies are challenging established paradigms, but concentrates specifically on those issues and applications of most relevance for other organisms. This includes effects and endpoints significant for non-human organisms, ways in which radiobiology methods and biomarkers are being applied in ecological research, factors influencing radiosensitivity in different organisms, and ecological risk assessment. Case studies include ecological research in Chernobyl and Fukushima, and laboratory work on biomarker analysis in model organisms.
The course is run in June every other year at NMBU, Norway (course code at NMBA: MINA 410). Previous course details are available here.
