Abstract:

The Division of Biological Effects is the biological research arm of the Bureau of Radiological Health. The Division supports experimental radiobiology and epidemiology studies which contribute to public health. The investigations conducted in-house and by contract examine various aspects of short- and long-term radiation effects in several animal species and in man. These investigations produce data which contribute to the knowledge of the effects of ionizing and nonionizing radiation exposure and provide supportive health effects information for the development of radiation exposure standards.
