This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to develop biomarkers/bioassays, techniques and/or devices for use in the civilian population that are rapid, reliable, inexpensive and easy-to-use.
This FOA will support approaches addressing one or more of the following research
1. Distinguish between the worried well and the exposed population, 2. Determine the radiation dose in the affected group, 3. Predict the acute and delayed radiation injuries to major organs/physiological systems by discovering biomarkers that can be used for triage and treatment decisions in the event of a large scale radiological incident.
