Understanding the link between radiation exposure and cancer
The research mission of the Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) is to identify, understand, and quantify the risk of cancer in populations exposed to medical, occupational, or environmental radiation, and to advance understanding of radiation carcinogenesis.
The next Radiation Epidemiology & Dosimetry Course will be held September 9-12, 2019, at NCI Shady Grove, Rockville, Maryland. Register for the Radiation Epidemiology & Dosimetry course.
Learn more about the 2019 Radiation Epidemiology & Dosimetry Course and view videos and course content from the 2015 course.
REB investigators carry out a wide range of epidemiological, genetic, and radiation dosimetry research to quantify risk, identify susceptible populations, and carry out advanced exposure assessments. Learn more about REB research areas.
REB fellows enjoy unique opportunities to plan, conduct, and publish results of a variety of research studies, while receiving training in radiation epidemiology, biostatistics, molecular epidemiology, radiation biology, and cancer risk assessment from radiation exposure.
REB investigators offer a variety of radiation tools and resources developed to support research into radiation and cancer risk.
