CONTRIBUTIONS FROM WOMEN TO THE RADIATION SCIENCES: A BRIEF HISTORY...

Jun 15, 2017 by

Contributions_from_Women_to_the_Radiation Abstract—Contributions from men to radiation science are well known, particularly the early contributions from such luminaries as William Roentgen, James Chadwick, Niels Bohr, Robert Oppenheimer, and the like. Although not ignored per se, beyond Marie Curie and Lise Meitner, the contributions of female nuclear scientists are not as widely recognized. This paper provides a concise historical summary of contributions to radiation science from the discovery of radiation through the current status of international leadershipwithin the radiation protection community. Beyond lead scientists and academics, this paper also considers support personnel aswell as the rolewomen have played in the advancement of radiation epidemiology....
