Attack of the (Radioactive) Wild Boars!

KromaTiD is providing assays to Dr. Susan Bailey of Colorado State University and her collaborators at Fukushima University to aid in their project “Improving Radiation Risk Assessment: a case study on wildlife species in Fukushima”. The study is collecting blood samples from the wild boar population surrounding the Fukushima nuclear facility to assess radiation dose and associated biomarkers, to help improve understanding of the health effects of chronic, low dose irradiation of humans and the environment following a nuclear event.
