For the establishment phase of the SWE-RAYS network, a steering committee was appointed at the first national workshop in August 2012. In december the same year this steering committee officcially formed the association, accepted the bylaws, and was elected as the first board of the association. Now, the board is elected at each annual meeting, held in August. Any member can nominate themselves or a colleague.
Rimon Thomas (Chairman)
Department of radiation physics, Gothenburg University.
PhD student in environmental radioactivity, Behavior of radionuclides in pit lakes in Sweden.
Also working in the radiation preparedness laboratory in Gothenburg University.
Diana Spiegelberg (Treasurer)
Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, and Department of Surgical Sciences Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.
Postdoctoral researcher in the field of Biomedical radiation science. My research focuses on novel tumor targeting strategies for use in molecular imaging and cancer therapy.
Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Uppsala University, PhD student in Medical Radiation Sciences.
I am interested in understanding of molecular mechanisms governing DNA damage and repair, finding new approaches in cancer treatment using DNA repair mechanisms and new method development.
Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University
PhD student in radioecology. I study the trophic transfer of radionuclides in benthic ecosystems of the Baltic Sea and the coast of Fukushima to determine where in food webs radionuclides end up after released into the environment.
