Space Radiation Biology seeks to understand the biological effects of cosmic radiation by applying advanced methods of radiation dosimetry and cell biology. For proper risk assessment and amelioration of the effects of radiation encountered in space the knowledge of the radiation distribution throughout the body and hence on the body dose, of the relative biological effectiveness of cosmic radiation, of the effects of other spaceflight factors on the expression of radiation damage, and of the underlying biological responses are necessary.
