The research activities of the department lie at the border of basic and applied research in the domain of dosimetry and microdosimetry of ionizing radiation and their applications in radiation protection, radiotherapy and radioecology. Research studies are often interdisciplinary and include physics, chemistry and biology, for more details please see Research.  Available unique equipment is summarized in Resources.
The founder and the first director of our institute was well known Czech physicist Frantisek Behounek. It has been established in 1953 as an independent institute; since 1994 it has become a part of Nuclear Physics Institute CAS as the Department of Radiation Dosimetry. In the same year Frantisek Spurnywas appointed as the new director and held the role until his death in 2010. The department headed by Marie Davidkova is located within the premises of Bulovka Hospital; currently the building undergoes an extensive reconstruction.
Some of us are lectures on Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionziing Radiation at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, CTU in Prague. We are also engaged in supervising of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral reserach projects (for more information please visit Education).
