Radiation Effect on CNS During Infancy: Underlying Mechanisms and Implications on Quality of Life in Adult and Aging

Based on the outcome of the FP7 EU project CEREBRAD (Cognitive and cerebrovascular effects induced by low dose radiation) (GA n:295552) and based on the progress in the field of late radiation effect after childhood exposure (for diagnostic or therapy), this workshop will bring together epidemiologists, radiobiologists, dosimetrist, medical practionners to debate and make the state of the art on different aspects of the quality of life of adults previously exposed at young age in clinical settings. On the other hand more advanced molecular neuro findings to relate the cause to effect will be discussed to evaluate late cognitive impairments and accelerated aging.
