Concept (Background)

Stem/progenitor cells are considered to be the origins of cancers. Therefore, understanding of the responses and behaviors of these cells to radiation exposure would improve the current knowledge of the processes of radiation carcinogenesis and the cancer risk assessment. Especially, evidences on the responses to the low dose and low dose rate radiation are expected to contribute to the radiological protection system.

Co-host: Health Research Foundation and The Japan Radiation Research Society.
