Project: Biological dosimetry for cosmic radiation exposure during intra and extravehicular activities in space using haemopoietic stemm cell functions.

project duration
01-APR-95 – 31-DEC-04
The purpose of this project is to selectively registrate doses, under shielding conditions corresponding to intra and extravehicular activities and to link these to the biological effects on eukaryotic cells. We propose the development of a device for simultaneous registration of radiation doses and biological cellular effects, which will be used in Biopan facilities on a satellite. The results will be investigated as to their usefulness for the development of a personnel passive dosimeter for manned space flights.
