, by Elise Tookmanian, Ph.D.
After the inaugural International Society of Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry (ISoRED) meeting was postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISoRED had its first in-person meeting in Sitges, Spain in May 2023. Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) investigators were instrumental in the founding of ISoRED. There were many presentations by DCEG investigators, staff scientists, and fellows, which are listed below.
