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.
