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.

Environment, Radiation & Health
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.
The field of medical isotopes is continuously evolving...
As a leader in medical isotopes and nuclear health applications...
To achieve these goals...
