Task Low Dose Radiation Cataract (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/20 02:45:15 PM (Central)
Short Title: Low dose cataract
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Department of Energy (DoE)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:

Our research utilizes radiation cataract as a model system to study the effects of low-dose ionizing radiation exposure in a complex, highly differentiated tissue. We believe radiation cataract is a useful model to determine the genetic and individual basis for risk from ionizing radiation with particular relevance to carcinogenesis and radiation induced DNA damage, repair and cell cycle control.
