Introduction

 Institute of Radiation Medicine Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences  is the first professional body that engaged in radiation medicine and nuclear medicine research in China's health system. The radiation institute was set up in June 1959 in Beijing, moved to Jianyang, Sichuan Province in 1969 and moved to Tianjin in 1984. The radiation institute is located in the New Technology Industrial Park of Nankai District, Tianjin, occupied an area of 19,000m2. After the unremitting efforts of the scientists of the older generation and researchers of several generations, the institute has developed into China's innovative research base for radioactive medicine, radiation damage and rescue and experimental nuclear medicine, it is a new type scientific research base relaying on national and provincial major scientific projects and integrating basic research, application research and industrialization.


     In more than 50 years of development and progress history, the research institute has made important contributions to China's national economy construction, technological development and national radiation safety. The research institute was approved as the first clinical division of emergency medical treatment for nuclear accident of the Ministry of Health by Ministry of Health, becoming China's important base of emergency clinical treatment and backup technology research for nuclear accident.The institute has successfully accomplished number of medical emergency rescue missions of international and domestic acute nuclear accidents, especially using the radioprotector independently developed by the institute to directly participate the rescue work for accident people in Former Soviet Union Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, won honor for our country. In 2003, the Ministry of Education recognized the blood internal medicine, nuclear medicine and medical imaging and radiation epidemiology of the institute as the key disciplines. In 2004, the institute was certified as Tianjin key lab of molecular nuclear medicine by Tianjin City. In 2005, the institute undertook the construction task of the network system for national nuclear radiation treatment base and national nuclear radiation treatment base. In 2009, the institute was approved as Ministry of Health educational training base for radioactive health. The institute is the affiliated unit of China Prevention Medicine Association Professional Committee of Radiological Health and National Committee of Radioactive Diagnostic Criteria.
