BIOL/PHYS 4173 Radiation Biology
An introduction to principles and concepts underlying the biological effects of ionizing radiation at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and whole-body levels. Topics covered will include an introduction to some of the concepts of radiation physics and basic biology. Other topics will include radiation damage to DNA: DNA repair mechanisms; cell-cycle effects of radiation; cell death mechanisms; clonogenic survival; relative biological effect (RBE); oxygen effects; radiation carcinogenesis; hereditary effects of radiation; clinical responses of normal tissues to radiation; cancer biology; whole-body irradiation; and aspects of differential modalities of radiation therapy used in a cancer clinic.
