A special section of this issue of Radiation Research ?includes important contributions relating basic DNA damage and repair processes to the understanding of the health risks of concern for space flight, studies of biological countermeasures to radiation effects, and applications of charged-particle beams such as protons and carbon ions for cancer therapy? (from Introduction by F.A. Cucinotta). The special section contains 16 PI/NASA papers and 9 ?Other papers," all of which are listed below.
