    Abstract

    The health effects arising from exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation are increasing due to the extensive use of medical and diagnostic applications. One of the central questions in the field of radiation biology is understanding the health consequences of these low doses, where several factors like genetics, life-style, and lack of robust epidemiological studies are impeding well-validated conclusions. Within the context of this PhD, we aim to understand the biological responses after low dose exposures in both in vitro and in vivo studies.
