8th workshop "Application of Charged Particle Accelerators in Studying Radiation Damage in Systems with a High Level of Organization (Space, Medical, Biological, and Technical Aspects)"

Laboratory of Radiation Biology, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research

Dubna, Moscow Region, 29 – 30 March 2010

Nuclear physics facilities of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) offer opportunities that are unique over Russia for studying the effect of multi-component and wide-spectrum radiation on biological and electronic systems. Heavy charged particle beams of the upgraded Nuclotron allow modeling the whole composition and spectrum of the solar cosmic rays (SCR) and galactic cosmic radiation (GCR). The upgraded IBR-2 pulsed reactor, IREN facility, and 660-MeV phasotron will soon open broad new opportunities for studying the effect of neutrons in a wide energy range. JINR has equipment and experience necessary for performing neutron structure analysis of biological and solid state objects on micro- and nanolevels.

The following issues will be discussed:

  1. Modeling the effect of heavy charged particles of the SCR and GCR on biological objects at the cellular, tissue, and organism levels.
  2. Using heavy charged particle beams for malignant tumor therapy.
  3. Modeling radiation damage and failures of microelectronic elements induced by cosmic radiation

It is planned to discuss a possibility of the establishment of a collaboration of interested organizations for the development of a research program in the above-mentioned fields and define approximately the conditions necessary for its realization at JINR's basic facilities.
