Senior Health Physicist Eugene (Gene) H. Carbaugh has been elected to a three-year term as Chairman of the U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory Accreditation Program (DOELAP) Radiobioassay Oversight Board. Gene has served as a member of the Oversight Board for 12 years.
Radiobioassay is the measurement of radioactivity in the human body.
DOELAP administers accreditation of DOE sites for direct radiobioassay measurements, such as whole body counts and lung counts, and indirect measurements, such as radiochemical analysis of urine and fecal samples. DOELAP accreditation is federally required for sites that routinely monitor workers for intakes of radioactivity.
Gene is a certified health physicist specializing in applied internal dosimetry and is one of the most senior internal dosimetrists in the U.S. Department of Energy complex.
