Ionizing radiation has widely been recognized to cause health adverse effects, including tissue reaction and the late effects. In case radiation disaster or medical accident, immediate countermeasures need to be provided to prevent or to mitigate deleterious health effects. This certainly needs comprehensive understandings of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the manifestation of the health effects, such as the mechanisms of DNA damage induction, DNA repair and DNA damage response, genetic and epigenetic gene alterations, cell death, tissue responses, and carcinogenesis. The class will provide you recent scientific evidences together with unforgettable experiences.
