CREAL: SHAMISEN kick-off meeting in Barcelona

News from CREAL

The kick off meeting of the SHAMISEN project, led by Elisabeth Cardis, Research Professor in Radiation Epidemiology at CREAL, an ISGlobal allied center, will take place in Barcelona on 17 and 18 December in the Marie Curie/Ramón i Cajal room, of the PRBB.

As part of the EC funded OPERRA project (Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area), SHAMISEN (Nuclear Emergency Situations – Improvement of Medical and Health Surveillance) will build upon lessons learned from experiences with populations affected by Chernobyl, Fukushima and other nuclear emergencies to develop recommendations for medical and health surveillance of populations affected by previous and future radiation accidents.

Nuclear emergencies, such as those which occurred in Chernobyl and Fukushima, have resulted in large numbers of persons being exposed to ionising radiation.
