60th anniversary of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR)

Radiobiological research at JINR's accelerators

Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, 6 Joliot-Curie Str., Dubna, Moscow Region, 141980, Russian Federation

The half-a-century development of radiobiological studies at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) is reviewed on a stage-by-stage basis. With the use of the Institute's accelerators, some key aspects of radiation biology have been settled, including the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of radiations with different physical characteristics; the radiation-induced mutagenesis mechanisms; and the formation and repair of genetic structure damage. Practical space radiobiology problems that can be solved using high-energy charged particles are discussed.
