AFRRI scientific director elected to NCRP

 
BETHESDA, Md., May 19, 2008—The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) has elected six new members, among them, Dr. Terry Pellmar, scientific director at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute and Chair, Department of Radiation Biology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Ten additional members were re-elected.

The election occurred at the NCRP’s 44th annual business meeting in April, held in conjunction with the council’s 2008 annual meeting on the topic of low dose and low dose-rate radiation effects and models.

Congress chartered the NCRP in 1964 under Public Law 88-376 as a non-profit national resource on topics related to radiation protection and radiation quantities, units and measurements. The council formulates and disseminates information, guidance and recommendations on radiation protection and measurements representing a consensus of scientific thinking. It also facilitates and stimulates cooperation among groups concerned with the scientific and related aspects of radiation protection and measurements.

"It is an honor to be elected a member of the NCRP," Dr. Pellmar said. "I look forward to contributing to the council’s mission with AFRRI’s considerable expertise in areas common to both organizations."

The council’s 100 elected members are leaders in many scientific fields relevant to radiation protection and measurements in medicine, homeland security, environmental protection, nuclear technology, and public and occupational radiation exposures. In addition to Dr. Pellmar, other newly elected council members include: Stephen V. Musolino, Brookhaven National Laboratory; J. Anthony Seibert, University of California-Davis Medical Center; Robert C. Whitcomb, Jr., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; X. George Xu, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; and R. Craig Yoder, Landauer, Inc.

NCRP members re-elected to another six-year term include: Jerrold T. Bushberg, John F. Cardella, Mary E. Clark, Paul M. DeLuca, John R. Frazier, William F. Morgan, Bruce A. Napier, Carl J. Paperiello, Daniel J. Storm, and Thomas S. Tenforde. Four retiring members were elected as distinguished emeritus members in recognition of their outstanding scientific contributions to the NCRP. They are: Thomas F. Gesell, Barbara J. McNeil, Henry D. Royal, and Roy E. Shore.
