The RISK-IR team takes every opportunity to disseminate the project and its results. For this reason it is also foreseen that the RISK-IR consortium will participate in a variety of events.
Please see below a list of events we have attended with links to relevant documents.
As noted in the report from the first periodic meeting, the RISK-IR consortium held a meeting in April 2015 to consider in depth the further integration of results of partner labs, and relating RISK-IR findings to risk extrapolation frameworks for low dose radiation risk. Two invited experts attended and contributed: Dr David Brenner of Columbia University Medical Centre and Dr Ohtsura Niwa of Fukushima Medical University. Material was also supplied by Dr Julian Preston, formally of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
The invited presentations covered a wide range of topics including:
Partner presentations followed in standard work package order and it was clear that significant progress had been made in all areas since the first periodic meeting. Most discussion centred around placing individual partner lab findings in context. This discussion led to discussions to re-consider the format and sequence of presentations for the second periodic meeting and the structure of the second highlights report to integrate by:
Relating findings to proposed adverse outcome pathways for radiation carcinogenesis, the Hanahan & Weinberg ‘hallmarks of cancer’ or similar frameworks for radiation carcinogenesis will be important for the future dissemination of RISK-IR findings to a wider scientific audience through reviews and presentations.
