The project entitled “Novel biological and physical methods for triage in radiological and nuclear (R/N) emergencies” (BioPhyMeTRE) is funded by the NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme.

As the result of large scale radiological or nuclear (R/N) emergencies, a considerable number of individuals can receive a range of radiation doses spanning from background levels to those large enough to cause medical consequences.

At this time, efficient and reliable triage of casualties, using biological, physical and clinical endpoints, able to rapidly identify individuals suspected of over-exposure to life-threatening doses, is urgently needed, as the immediate assessment of the absorbed dose allows to identify individuals who need urgent medical intervention.

The BioPhyMeTRE Project focuses on innovative biological and physical methods allowing a rapid screening/triage of potential overexposed individuals in case of radiological and nuclear emergencies, by using inexpensive and user-friendly analytical procedures and devices.
