Evaluate biophysical models of the inverse dose-rate effect and their implications for risks associated with indoor radon exposure.
Compare risks and pathology of lung tumors induced by exposure to radon with risks and pathology of those induced by external exposures to low-LET radiation.
Examine in more detail the induction and repair of molecular changes resulting from -particle exposure.
