Health Physics & Radiation Biophysics

The Health Physics & Radiation Biophysics

The Health Physics and Radiation Biophysics Section (HPRBS) was created in 1987. The research work of HPRBS centres on interaction of radiation with Biological systems. The Section also provides radiation protection services to personnel of the Centre, oil and gas sector, mining sector and other sectors of the national economy
