Biological Irradiation

The Biological Irradiation Core provides investigators with the capability to understand the effect of ionizing radiation on critical cellular responses, such as DNA repair, cellular proliferation and inflammation.

In vitro studies:
  • Cultured mammalian cells
  • Establishment of feeder layers
  • Induction of DNA strand breaks
  • Cell survival studies
In vivo preclinical studies: 
  • Rodent tumor therapy studies
  • Spontaneous animal tumor studies
  • Normal tissue radiation tolerance and pathophysiology studies
  • Radiation physics /development studies
