Brant Ulsh, CHP

Topic: Recent Research Concerning Biological Responses to Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation

Dr. Brant Ulsh is a Research Health Scientist with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, where he has worked since 2003.  Dr. Ulsh is a certified health physicist, and he holds a PhD in Radiological Health Sciences from Colorado State University, and a MS in Health Physics and a BS in Nuclear Engineering, both from the University of Cincinnati.  Dr. Ulsh has diverse work experience ranging from regulatory compliance at nuclear power plants, to environmental monitoring at DOE sites, and most recently dose reconstruction for the largest radiation worker compensation program in the world.  Dr. Ulsh’s research interests and expertise focus on the biological and environmental responses to low doses of radiation, and occupational radiation dose reconstruction.



This presentation will focus on recent research – what it tells us and what it doesn’t tell us, about biological responses to low doses of ionizing radiation.  Brant will also discuss the recent catastrophe (on March 11, 2011) and the unfolding nuclear and environmental events in Japan, in addition to some observations on how the press, public, and scientific community reacted to these events, and whether or not these reactions are consistent with what we know about risks.
