Description of Working Group Aims:

Investigating the interactions between radiation, radiation products, molecules in isolation and the living cellular environment. The working group will further the understanding of critical targets within the cell for various forms of radiation and radiation products.

Investigation techniques that are used to interrogate these mechanisms include:

Biphotonic Laser Applications
Radiation Mimics
Studies of Gene Expression, Repair Mechanisms, Apoptosis, Mutagenesis
Theoretical Modelling
Ion Beam Microprobes
Flow Cytometry
Cell Cycle Analysis
Pulse Radiolysis
Electron Spectroscopy
Fragmentation Analysis
Stop-Flow Spectrofluorimetry
