The main research lines that are currently studied in radiobiology at SCK•CEN are:
- The individual susceptibility to ionizing radiation and the related cancer risks.
- The impact of ionizing radiation on female gametes, on the development of the embryo and the brain.
- The impact of space conditions (in particular of cosmic radiation and weightlessness) on health.
- The biological effects of the medical use of ionizing radiation and radioactive substances in radiotherapy and medical imaging.
