Centre for Health Effects of Radiological and Chemical Agents (CHRC) Centre Day


The Centre for Health Effects of Radiological and Chemical Agents (CHRC) has organised a 'Centre Day' on Thursday 8th February 2018 from 12.30 till 5.00pm in the Newton Room at Brunel University London, and very much hope you can join us!

Our initial focus will be on the generation and promotion of new, multi-disciplinary research that supports the needs of the aged nuclear test community and their families. Our future ambitions are to broaden this scope to also include health effects of other radiological and chemical exposures that may be seen in military settings.
