The March 2008 Radiation Research podcast is presented by Massimo.
In her News Minute, Vered talks about Science Education in
the United States, the reduced interest in Engineering and Math,
compared to China and India, and the social impact that this could have.
For the interview of the month, Massimo spoke to Leslie Respath, from University of California Irvine, last author of the paper Low
Doses of Very Low-Dose-Rate Low-LET Radiation Suppress
Radiation-Induced Neoplastic Transformation In Vitro and Induce an
Adaptive Response. This paper focuses on adaptive responses in a not-so-classic way.
Sara Rockwell highlights what’s in this month of _Radiation
Research_, beginning with the paper by Dr Szumiel, recipient of the
ERR’s 2007 Bacq and Alexander Award, and highlighting manuscripts about non-ionizing radiation effects.
