Nuclear Methods with Applications in Biology
Review of the basics of nuclear chemistry, application of radiation for diagnostic purpose and for its radiation effect. Nuclear techniques in biology: isotope dilution, radioimmunoassay, radiotracer techniques in plant and animal physiology as well as in human application. Preparation and application of isotopically labelled compounds, PET-diagnostics, CT and other imaging techniques. Radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, biological consequences of radiation exposure. The basics of stable isotope labelling and applications in analytical chemistry; isotope effects.
