March 2013: Comparing the Effect of Protons to X-rays/Gamma-rays

Posted By Administration, Friday, May 10, 2013

Sylvain Costes speaks with Rainer Sachs, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics and of Physics from UC Berkeley and Swati Girdhani, assistant professor at GeneSys Research Institute (GRI) / Tufts University School of Medicine  (http://cancer-systems-biology.org/) for their recent review in the March issue of Radiation Research, entitled " Biological effects of proton radiation: what we know and don't know ". This is a special Videocast interview done in the Faculty Club of the University of California at Berkeley.

Interview with Ross Berbeco

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

 

The December 2012 podcast features an interview with Ross Berbeco, lead author of the paper entitled DNA Damage Enhancement from Gold Nanoparticles for Clinical MV Photon Beams appearing in the December 2012 issue of Radiation Research. The interview is hosted by Marjan Boerma and covers the key aspects of Dr Berbeco's work, and that of his co-authors, touching on the value of using gold in the context of MV x ray-based therapies, as well as photon beams of lower energies, and on the in vivo problematic of these types of targeted approaches.

Interview with Michael Scholtz

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

 

The November 2012 podcast features an interview with Michel Scholtz from GSI Darmstadt, Germany, senior author of the paper entitled Modeling Cell Survival after Photon Irradiation Based on Double-Strand Break Clustering in Megabase Pair Chromatin Loops appearing in the November 2012 issue of Radiation Research. The interview is hosted by Massimo Pinto and touches on the research efforts of Michael Scholtz, and his colleagues, who have been focused for a long time toward a deeper understanding of the biological effects of high linear energy transfer radiations that are used in cancer therapy with accelerated ion beams. Their more recent work that Michael Scholtz describes in this interview focuses on modeling the biological impact of clustered vs isolated DNA double strand breaks induced by photon irradiation, as a means to better understand some complexities that have emerged in their earlier investigations with high-LET radiation.

Assessing Risk of Airport Whole-Body Scanners

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

Sylvain Costes interviews John Moulder on his recent contribution in risk assessment of airport scanners, and how he got to know about what he wrote in his commentary paper appearing in the June issue of Radiation Research entitled Risks of Exposure to Ionizing and Millimeter-Wave Radiation from Airport Whole-Body Scanners. This paper was written after John Moulder presented it at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) meeting in Vancouver in 2011.
