Low dose radiation vs. endogenous oxidative damage the same or different?
(2) Understanding biological responses to radiation and oxidative damage. (3) Thresholds for low dose radiation fact or fiction? (4) Genetic factors that affect individual susceptibility to low dose radiation. (5) Communication of research results. This Program uses modern molecular tools to develop a better scientific basis for understanding exposures and risks to humans from low dose radiation that can be used to achieve acceptable levels of human health protection at the lowest possible cost. Proposed basic research should contribute to EM needs by decreasing health risks to the public and workers from low dose radiation, providing opportunities for major cost reductions in cleaning up DOE’s environmental problems, and reducing the time required to achieve EM’s mission goals. DATES: Potential applicants should submit a one page preapplication referencing Program Notice 99-14 by 4:30 P.M. E.S.T., February 23, 1999.
