Multi-scale modeling of Radiation Therapy – Bridging the gap from Physics to Biology

Via Zoom

Jan Schuemann, Ph.D. (he/him/his) Associate Professor Associate Director of Physics Research Head of the Multi-scale Monte-Carlo Modeling Lab Abstract: Modeling approaches offer a strong tool to understand mechanisms of complex processes, allowing us to probe correlations that are not accessible with experimental techniques. My lab uses the Monte Carlo method to investigate the effects of radiation

Safe Enough? The History of Probabilistic Risk Assessment and Nuclear Safety.

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley

Thomas Wellock Historian Abstract: Since the dawn of the Atomic Age, nuclear experts have confronted a deceptively simple question: When is a reactor "safe enough" to adequately protect the public? And, for 70 years, they have pursued a deceptively simple answer that quantified the probability of a major reactor accident. In his presentation, Tom Wellock

Long-lived radionuclides from the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, and consequences for Pacific ecosystems and seafood consumers

Nicholas Fisher Distinguished Professor School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York Abstract: After the Fukushima accident in March 2011, marine organisms, seawater and sediment were contaminated with both 134Cs and 137Cs that was released into coastal waters. We analyzed radionuclides in Pacific biota, including plankton, diverse invertebrates, and pelagic
