HEALTH

NII will be involved with Radiation Effects research programs focused on improving our understanding of how radiation impacts biological systems. Programs explore both cancer and non-cancer endpoints related to removing background radiation, radiation exposure during sensitive life stages, to specific organs during medical diagnostics, with a focus on the low-dose range.

AIMS

Contribute to basic radiation science, particularly in the low dose range, to understand how radiation impacts biological systems

Support R&D efforts throughout the isotope develop chain from isotope production in the reactor to patient treatment

Inform regulations and practices for medical and occupational radiation exposure in Canada and internationally

PROGRAMS

Genetic Models of Risk

Radiation Tools

Lens of the Eye

Environment, Radiation & Health

 

MEDICAL ISOTOPES

Since 1940, Canada has been a global leader in producing isotopes. We use isotopes to advance human life and health through a wide range of applications including industry and national security, consumer products, sterilization, agriculture, diagnosis and medical treatment, and for a variety of applications in medicine, chemistry, physics, energy environmental issues and material sciences.

AIMS

Position Canada to be a leader through research, increasing general public, industry and government awareness of the role of isotopes in Canada

PROGRAMS

Undertake efforts to supply isotopes through production in commercial reactors for medical research as well as treatment

PROGRAMS

Increase awareness and education of the global importance and opportunities within Canada

PROGRAMS

OUR GOALS

The field of medical isotopes is continuously evolving...

As a leader in medical isotopes and nuclear health applications...

To achieve these goals...
