Scientific and practical URCRM departments
URCRM conducts productive research work in the field of radiation medicine, radiation epidemiology, radiation dosimetry and radiobiology.
  • The laboratory team studies the mechanisms of molecular genetic and cellular responses to the effects of ionizing radiation in the range of low doses and low dose rates.
  • The team of the laboratory studies genetic and cytogenetic effects of chronic ionizing radiation in a wide range of doses on the human body.
  • The team of the laboratory conducts research of mental health and socio-psychological problems of the population accidentally exposed to radiation
  • The laboratory conducts research in the field of radiation dosimetry to ensure radiation protection of people living in conditions of radioactive contamination, develops methods for indication of radiation exposure and assessment of external and internal radiation doses to people of different sex and age.
  • The focus of the research of the Epidemiology laboratory of the URCRM is to analyze the effect of chronic radiation exposure on the health of the residents of the Southern Urals and their offspring, including cancer incidence and mortality risk analysis, the study of non-cancer effects, as well as the influence of non-radiation factors on the values of radiation risk.
  • The experimental department conducts research on the effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation on experimental biological systems, as well as the development of approaches to correct their adverse effects. Экспериментальный отдел проводит исследования влияния ионизирующих и неионизирующих излучений на экспериментальные биологические системы, а также разработку подходов для коррекции их неблагоприятных последствий.
  • The information basis for medical follow-up of exposed population and analysis of medical consequences of radiation exposure is the medical and dosimetric database "Man". The registry of the exposed population began to be formed in the URCRM in 1967 and contains personalized information about both the exposed people themselves and their offspring.
