  • Description

Radiation biology, or radiobiology, is a very young science, solely concerned with the study of the interactions between ionizing radiation and living matter. This science slowly became a recognized field of study after the discovery of ionizing radiation (i.e., X rays) in 1895. A broadly varied and evolving terminology has been applied to aspects of radiobiology and therefore, archival searches concerning it are complex.
