Developing a Long-Term Strategy for Low-Dose Radiation Research in the United States


Project Scope:

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will perform a study and provide a report with findings and recommendations on the current status and development of a long-term strategy for low-dose radiation research in the United States. Specifically, the objectives of the study will be to:

 

  1. Define the health and safety issues that need to be guided by an improved understanding of low dose and low dose rate radiation health effects.
  2. Identify current scientific challenges for understanding low dose and low dose rate radiation health effects.
  3. Assess the status of current low dose radiation research in the United States and internationally.
  4. Recommend a long-term strategic and prioritized research agenda to

  • address scientific research goals for overcoming the identified scientific challenges in coordination with other research efforts

  • support education and outreach activities to disseminate information and promote public understanding of low-dose radiation.

  1. Define the essential components of the research program that would address this research agenda within the universities and National Laboratories.
  2. Address coordination between federal agencies (including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and different DOE offices) and with international efforts to achieve objectives.
  3. Identify and, to the extent possible, quantify, potential monetary and health-related impacts to Federal agencies, the general public, industry, research communities, and other users of information produced by such research program.

 

The National Academies will prepare a report with findings and recommendations that addresses the objectives above.

Andrew P. Feinberg
Andrew P. Feinberg studied mathematics and humanities at Yale in the Directed Studies honors program, and he received his B.A. (1973) and M.D. (1976) from the accelerated medical program at Johns Hopkins University, as well as an M.P.H. from Johns Hopkins (1981). He performed a postdoctoral fellowship in developmental biology at UCSD, clinical training in medicine at University of Pennsylvania, and genetics research and clinical training at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Feinberg is considered the founder of the field of cancer epigenetics, having discovered altered DNA methylation in cancer in the early 1980’s with Bert Vogelstein. Over the decades since, Feinberg and his colleagues have shaped the landscape of our understanding of DNA methylation and other epigenetic changes, and their applications to epidemiology and medicine, and have introduced groundbreaking statistical and laboratory methods to the study of the epigenome. He and his colleagues discovered human imprinted genes and loss of imprinting (LOI) in cancer, and they proved the epigenetic hypothesis of cancer through their work on Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. Most recently, they pioneered genome-scale epigenetics (epigenomics), with the first NIH funded Epigenome Center, pioneering methods including the first comprehensive genome-scale methylation discovering the major target for epigenetic variation in humans, CpG island shores. He led the first whole genome bisulfite sequencing analysis of human cancer, discovering large hypomethylated blocks that correspond to nuclear lamina-associated heterochromatin, as well as a mechanism for disruption of these blocks in epithelial-mesenchymal transition. He has also helped to create the field of epigenetic epidemiology, discovering epigenetic mediation of genetic variants in disease. He has made several important theoretical contributions as well, including the epigenetic progenitor hypothesis of cancer and the role of entropy in epigenetic development and disease. He is a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor in the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Public Health, where he is Director of the Center for Epigenetics. He is a recipient of an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, is a member of the National Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Science, the NIH Council of Councils, and he has received honorary doctorates from the University of Uppsala, the Karolinska Institute, and the University of Amsterdam.

He received his undergraduate degree in mathematics and Norwegian from St. Olaf College and a Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of Washington. His methodological research focuses on analysis methods for longitudinal (or, correlated) and survival (or, event-time) data. At RERF, he developed novel analysis approaches for radiation risk estimation for cancer mortality and incidence, while accounting for potential sources of unmeasured confounding and outcome misclassification. As a collaborative biostatistician, he has led or participated in a wide range of biomedical research projects, most recently as director of the biostatistics core for an international consortium studying outcomes among cancer patients diagnosed with COVID-19. He has taught short courses on longitudinal data analysis and joint modeling of longitudinal and survival outcomes in the U.S. and abroad.
