2 week training course on Radiation Epidemiology, Dosimetry and Radiation Protection Concepts of ICRP

Dear Colleagues

The 2-week training course on "Radiation Epidemiology, Dosimetry and Radiation Protection Concepts of ICRP” is jointly organized by the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich TUM, Germany. The course is supported by the ‘CONCERT-European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research’ under Horizon 2020. This programme aims to contribute to the sustainable integration of European and national research programs in the field of radiation protection and supports innovative research projects in radiation protection.

During the course we will teach the concepts and designs of studies into the elucidation of the health effects of low, moderate and high radiation doses by epidemiological methods in suitable cohorts. Presented topics will include methods and uncertainties of dose reconstruction, the strength and weakness of different epidemiological study designs, use of concepts in radiological protection with some emphasis in medical applications. The relevant health consequences as studied with the epidemiological tools will cover both cancer as well as non-malignant diseases (cardiovascular, ocular and neurological disorders). As a particular feature of the course, leading members of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) will highlight the use of scientific knowledge for the purpose of radiation protection.

The course is open to postgraduate students and to scientists studying biological or medical aspects of ionizing irradiation in laboratories in the European Union. All lectures are given in English. Based on the great success of our previous courses in 2013, 2014 and 2017 we are able to present you a very interesting, balanced and multi-faceted program. Welcome in Munich and Salzburg in January 2019!
