BER Supported Program at ORAU Received $70 Million NIOSH Grant


The Radiation Internal Dose Information Center (RIDIC) at ORAU was recently awarded a five-year $70 million contract to estimate the occupational radiation dose received by approximately 40,000 workers around the Nation. In collaboration with Dade Moeller & Associates and MJW Corporation, Inc., researchers will reconstruct the radiation doses of more than 8,000 individuals per year, which includes workers from various DOE facilities. BER has a long history of supporting the development of the computational codes at RIDIC that will be used in this contract to estimate human exposure.
