About the Event:

Brunel University London is establishing a Centre for Health Effects of Radiological and Chemical Agents (CHRC). To launch this new initiative and showcase our current projects we are having a 'Centre Day' on the 8th Feb 2018. CHRC is currently funded to carry out research on the genetic, psychosocial and wellbeing effects of participating at nuclear test sites for veterans and also their families.
