The Radiation Epidemiology Group of U1018 INSERM/IGR investigates all aspects of radiation epidemiology. The group is located in Gustave Roussy Institute. The group includes two teams: epidemiology and dosimetry. The Dosimetry team develops methods and software to estimate the radiation dose in and outside of the radiotherapy fields and at distance from radiation sources in brachytherapy. The group is experienced in participating in multipartner European research consortia and is a member of the current / recent EURATOM contracts GENE_RAD-RISK, CHILD-MED-RAD, and CHILD-THYR. This partner will bring expertise in the following areas to the project: Epidemiology, Cohort analysis, Biostatistics, Dosimetry, Pediatrics, Oncology, and Cardiology. All the technical platforms of Gustave Roussy Hospital, which is the largest cancer treatment hospital in France, will be available to the consortium.
