Division of Radiobiology
The Division of Radiobiology at Stellenbosch University provides the much-needed radiobiological input (through teaching, research, and service) to disciplines of applied radiation sciences and radiation medicine within the larger Department of Medical Imaging and Clinical Oncology. These include nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology, radiopharmacy, medical physics, radiation protection, and radiation oncology. While there is growing interest in the field of nuclear applications (e.g. proliferation of nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy, and nuclear power facilities), expertise in radiobiology is very scarce, not only in Africa but also worldwide. Therefore, there is a need to develop competent human capital and leadership in radiobiology to support the growing nuclear industry.
