The Project


CARDIORSIK consists of 8 workpackages (WP). The experimental programme will investigate both hypotheses on the pathogenic mechanisms of radiation-induced cardiovascular risk at low doses in comparison with those operating at high doses, by studying, in parallel, late radiation injury to arteries and to the capillary network.

The chart below shows their linkage and cooperation.

Please click on the chart for more information on each workpackage.
