Interview with Michael Scholtz

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.

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 30, 2009
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

In this month’s episode, an interview with Marlis Frankenberg-Schwager from the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Goettingen, Germany.

The title of her manuscript was: Single-Strand Annealing, Conservative Homologous Recombination, Nonhomologous DNA End Joining, and the Cell Cycle-Dependent Repair of DNA Double-Strand Breaks Induced by Sparsely or Densely Ionizing Radiation.

Your views on this podcast are most welcome.
