Radiological and Nuclear Terrorism
Detonation of a small scale nuclear device or the more likely scenario of explosion of a "dirty bomb" remain high-priority concerns of our government and regulatory agencies. Appropriate public health response includes rapid assessment of individual risk, which includes precise dose assessment. Work at the Center is directed towards the development of rapidly deployable, automated, large scale biodosimetric devices and approaches suitable for screening large numbers of potentially exposed individuals.
