The mission of the Center for Radiological Research (CRR) is

1) to foster a multi disciplinary approach towards understanding the biological and human health consequences of ionizing radiation exposure,  2) to train the next generation of radiobiologists, and  3) to provide an unbiased, comprehensive, independent source of scientific information on radiation exposure for government, elected officials, non-profit institutions and private entities to enable them to make informed policy decisions.
