Present Calendar Entry:
PHYS 405 (3) Radiation Biophysics
Physical and chemical interactions of ionizing
radiations and their biological effects at the cellular,
tissue and whole-animal levels. [3-0-0]
Prerequisite: Third year standing in Science or
Applied Science or permission of the Department
Head is required.
Action:
Change the prerequisites. Replace the
credit exclusion with a reference to
the official Faculty of Science credit
exclusion list. Add in a link to
the credit exclusion list.
Rationale:
A small number of students that have registered in
the course were disadvantaged by a lack of basic
knowledge of radiation, which is covered in PHYS
102 or PHYS 108. It saves space and is better to
refer to the official Faculty of Science credit
exclusion list.
