Welcome

The 2010 American Statistical Association's Conference on Radiation and Health continues a decades-long tradition of bringing together leading internationally known scientists, and new investigators working in the bio-physical, biological, biostatistical and public health aspects of radiation epidemiology.

Located in historic Annapolis MD on the scenic Chesapeake Bay, the 2010 Conference will focus on "Radiation Exposures in Medicine: Biological and Public Health Significance". Sessions will include studies of the impact of new and rapidly increasing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures on the late effects of exposure to patients, practitioners, and the public; biological effects due to low-dose, diagnostic exposures; and the significance of new findings related to genetic differences in susceptibility to cancer and to radiation.

The Conference continues its mission of bringing together scientists in a collegial and relaxed atmosphere. Morning and evening sessions will be devoted to understanding the state of radiation science and human health, and long afternoons will be free for informal interaction and exploration of Annapolis. All invited speakers are internationally recognized experts in their field of specialization. The conference structure reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of radiation research. The meeting is intentionally kept small (less than 100 participants) to encourage informal discussion and personal interaction.
