NTI, the University of California System, and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)-Office of Radiological Security will host two workshops for researchers and hospital staff on the risks associated with using cesium-137 irradiators for research and blood irradiation. The workshops will take place in two California locations this week:
- January 29th, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm, University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA)
- January 30th, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm, University of California – San Francisco (UCSF)
NTI’s Vice President Andrew Bieniawski is included among the expert panelists who will help facilitate this technical discussion. The aim is to educate research and healthcare professionals about the availability of safe and effective alternative technology that can help eliminate the threat of cesium-137, a radioactive material, being used to create a “dirty bomb.”
