Booklet “Life Sciences at Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics”

Publications, 23 November 2021

At the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics (FLNP) of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) much attention is paid to life science research for more than half a century now.

Owing to advances in research approaches, there is now a better understanding of the relevant mechanisms for health protection and even its recovery. Establishing the regular monitoring of environmental pollution helps to alleviate its negative impact on people and the planet. The examples of notable results obtained by scientists at the FLNP, some of which are presented in this booklet, demonstrate the importance of taking a closer and more detailed look at life sciences through the prism of radiation.
