  • USTUR signs MOU with the Centre for Radiation Chemical and Environmental Hazards

    Last December, the USTUR signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Centre for Radiation Chemical and Environmental Hazards (CRCE), Public Health England. This partnership formalizes collaboration between the two organizations, and allows PHE to share its newly developed internal dosimetry software, Taurus, with the USTUR for research purposes. Initially, the USTUR will work with the base model, which is designed for operational dose assessment. However, PHE is also designing an advanced version of Taurus for use in research, which the USTUR will use to model individual registrant cases. This partnership was facilitated by Sergei Tolmachev (USTUR … » More …
