Laboratory of radiation protection


The Laboratory was established in 2016 on the basis of the Laboratory of Natural Sources of Radiation and the Laboratory of Radiation-and-Hygienic Regulations.

T.O. Pavlenko, Professor, Doctor of Sciences (Biology), is a head of the Laboratory.
Tel .: + 38 (044) 513-94-12, e-mail: tpavlenko@ukr.net

The main scientific activities:
Study of the impact of the sources, technogenically enhanced, of natural origin on the population and under conditions of the production:
determination of the activity of radon-222 in the indoor air of residential and public buildings and on the workplaces;
assessment of doses of radiation of the population of Ukraine and correspondent radiation risks;
gamma spectrometric investigation of natural radionuclides content in building materials, mineral building materials, as well as in industrial waste.
Development of the normative and methodical documents on the issues of human radiation protection from the sources of natural origin and in other situations of human exposure;
Substantiation of anti-radonmeasures.
Educational work with the population on the issues of radiation protection.

The most significant scientific achievements:
The researchers took part in 6 international projects, including:
the project "Reduction of Lung Cancer Risks Caused by Exposure to Radon Gas and Nature Radiation" (2006-2013) on radiation protection from radon, substantiation and introduction of anti-radon measures (SSM, Sweden);
the project "ENSURE (PCP, 2010-2013)" on handling with uranium production waste and rehabilitation of contaminated territories as a result of the operation of the uranium facilities (SSM, Sweden);
development of the corresponding international recommendations ( Regulatory Basis for Remediation of Uranium Production Legacy Sites, IAEA, 2014-2015);
joint Ukrainian-Japanese project "Perception of Radiation Risk in Ukrainian People on the perception of radiation risks by the population of Ukraine (University of Nagasaki, Japan, 2008-2011).
