Laboratories, universities unite to build radioecology expertise
Date:1/26/2011

ll be to work with key partners to establish a training and education program for radioecologists to develop future capability as the existing pool of experts reaches retirement age. NCoRE will serve as faculty for courses offered at some of the partner universities.

In addition to the education component, the NCoRE member institutions will seek out opportunities to collaborate in research projects and development of methods for risk reduction from human exposure to radionuclides and associated chemicals. The partners will leverage their resources and expertise through joint research proposals in areas that include molecular and genetic level effects, synergistic effects, individual and population level studies, ecosystem studies, sequestration and remediation, and homeland security issues related to urban radioecology. A core component of the program will be to make the fundamental connection between environmental health and human health risk assessment.

So far, two graduate students are pursuing projects at SRNL under the auspices of NCoRE. One is doing work in uncertainty analysis to determine potential errors or ways of enhancing current methods of measurement and analysis of radionuclides in liquid effluent and surface water samples taken at the Savannah River Site. The other, a PhD candidate, is performing work related to how non-radioactive and radioactive elements in contaminated soil are absorbed by specific plant species. .

Member organizations of NCoRE currently include:

  • U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River National Laboratory
  • Duke University
  • Colorado State University
  • Oregon State University
  • Clemson University
  • University of South Carolina
  • University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory
  • Institut De Radioprotection Et De Surete Nucleaire (IRSN, France)
  • Chernobyl Center's International Radioecology Laboratory (IRL, Ukraine)
