EMRP BioQuaRT: Biologically Weighted Quantities in Radiation Therapy, 2012-2015
The aim of JRP SIB06 BIOQUART is to develop measurement and simulation techniques for determining the physical properties of ionising particle track structure on different length scales, and to investigate at the cellular level how these track structure characteristics correlate with the biological effects of radiation. The relevant length scales range from about 2 nm (diameter of the DNA double helix) to about 10 µm (diameter of the cell nucleus). [Read more]
