Epigenetic seminar at NRPA August 19

An epigenetic seminar was held at NRPA August 19 to all interested CERAD members. In addition to CERAD partners,  invited speakers from Oslo Universitetssykehus and the University of Oslo was present. Program and presentations can be found here.

CERAD workshops on radiation and risk assessment

CERAD workshops on radiation and risk assessment

Two CERAD workshops will be held at NRPA (August 26th) and NIVA (September 2nd) to discuss concepts of radioactivity, UV, risk assessment and benefit-cost models. The workshops are organized by the RA4 leaders, Astrid Liland and Knut-Erik Tollefsen, and are open to all interested CERAD participants.
