Posted: May 05, 2010

Dr. Bill Morgan was recently elected to the Board of Directors, the policy-making body of the NCRP. This organization was chartered by Congress in 1964 to support radiation protection by providing independent scientific analysis, information, and recommendations that represent the consensus of leading scientists.Dr. Morgan is Vice President of NCRP's Program Area Committee-I (PAC-1) that covers basic criteria, epidemiology, radiobiology, and risk. He is Director of Radiation Biology and Biophysics at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and is a leading researcher in the fields of radiation biology and the long-term biological effects of radiation exposure. He leads PNNL's Low Dose Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Biological and Environmental Research.
