On November 17, 2014, the Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board of the National Academy of Sciences will be hosting a meeting to assist with scoping the next Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR) report—the BEIR VIII report—on health risks from exposure to low levels of ionizing radiation.
The meeting, which is open to the public in its entirety, will be held at the National Academy of Sciences, located at 2101 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC.
This is a preliminary meeting as no agency has formally requested a BEIR VIII report yet. For the previous NAS report on low-dose ionizing radiation impacts, see BEIR VII, published in 2006. Register here.
