The Department’s Policy Research Programme (PRP) commissions high quality, research-based evidence.
The PRP would like to invite applications in the areas of Radiation Protection Research including:
Priority Area 1: Studies to test the linear no threshold (LNT) hypothesis at low (<100mSv) doses
Priority Area 2: How radiation from medical exposures contributes to future cancer risk, particularly in radiosensitive groups
Priority Area 3: Non-cancer effects from ionising and non-ionising radiation exposures
Priority Area 4: Health effects of internal and external radiation sources, and uncertainties in dose coefficients and distributions of different emitters
