General information about International scientific conference
«HEALTH EFFECTS OF THE CHORNOBYL ACCIDENT – A THIRTY YEARS AFTERMATH»
(18-19 April 2016, Kyiv, Ukraine)
Almost 30 years passed since the day of events at the Chornobyl NPP, but up to nowadays scientists in many countries are interested by the problem – what are consequences of the accident in Ukraine, first of all for health condition of today’s and future generations.
We include into a unprecedented phenomenon of the Chornobyl accident the impact of not only external irradiation and intake of radionuclides, but also high degree of chemical pollution, changes of life conditions, inadequate perception of radiation danger, social and economic transformations taking place at the post-accidental period. The experience of Chornobyl has shown its extreme importance for prognosis of health effects of radiation accidents such as Fukushima as well as for medical preparedness.
The conference will address researchers in a field of radiation biology and medicine, health care professionals, decision makers, as well as experts in radiation emergency and medical preparedness. The main aim of the conference is to analyse the 30-year experience of Chornobyl studies with the special attention to the effects of low dose ionizing radiation.
Invited lectors for the conference sessions will be leading national experts with the practical experience in radiation research after Chornobyl. We hope that this conference will fulfil its aim – the spread of the scientific understanding of the nature of Chornobyl health effects and highlight the ways of further scientific activities and help radiation research after Chornobyl and other accidents.
