Task Evaluation of Sex-Specific Differences in Lung Cancer Radiation Risks and Recommendations for Use in Transfer Models (NCRP)
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Sex Specific Diff Lung Cancer
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:

 Aim 1)  To determine whether a sex difference exists for radiation induced lung cancers across all  available exposed populations.

  Aim 2) To address the issues of transferring risks from one exposed population (e.g., the  Japanese atomic bomb survivors) to another (i.e., the astronaut population).
 
  Aim 3) To evaluate the optimum ways for incorporating the sex-specific lung cancer risks into the NASA lifetime risk projection model.
