Facility Type: Department of Energy
Facility Description: The Laboratory of Radiobiology and Environmental Health (LREH), established by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1951, is an institute for research and training in cell biology. LREH is dedicated to fundamental research and investigation of the ways in which radiation and other energy-related biomedical insults affect cellular processes and lead to detrimental genetic and somatic biomedical effects. Research studies are undertaken to investigate the mechanisms by which perturbation and repair of cellular systems can affect the whole organism, cause cancer in the present generation, and damage future generations. Research focuses specifically on ways in which the organism can cope with such insults. As a research unit in the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, the laboratory was extensively involved with the academic programs of the university, until its closure in 1999.
Laboratory of Radiobiology and Environmental Health is listed as a Department of Energy (DOE) site under the EEOICPA.
