NCI/NIAID Dosimetry Workshop Proceedings

May 8, 2009

Washington D.C.

The purpose of the workshop, organized by the National Cancer Institute and sponsored by the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was to explore how uncertainties in individual dose estimates affect the statistical power and shape of the dose response in epidemiologic investigations. It was a follow-up of a workshop that was held by the National Cancer Institute on the same topic in September 1997. 

​This page provides a link to Adobe Acrobat pdf files of MS PowerPoint presentations made at the May 8th workshop that was held at the Georgetown University Conference Center in Washington D.C. The presentations are listed in the order in which they were given. In the days after the workshop there was continued discussion that occurred via e-mail. A link to these discussions are also included in the table below.
