Health Physics Special Issue Features Contributions by Bill Morgan, Tony Brooks
Dr. William (Bill) Morgan, Director of Radiation Biology & Biophysics at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Dr. Antone (Tony) Brooks, PNNL consultant, are major contributors to the March 2011 special issue of Health Physics. This issue highlights the Victor Bond Workshop held May 2-5, 2010, in Richland, Washington. The workshop honored the late Dr. Victor (Vic) Bond, whose research resulted in numerous influential scientific papers that contributed greatly to the understanding of radiation effects in biological systems.
