    Abstract

    Molecular epidemiology is an emerging discipline which seeks to improve our understanding of carcinogenesis by combining laboratory based techniques (sometimes but not always operating at the molecular level) with epidemiological methods. 'Biological marker' refers to the molecular and cellular events that form the substrate for molecular epidemiology studies. This paper reviews the work performed to date on the search for appropriate biological markers for ionizing radiation, a major occupational carcinogen.
