Per Ref A request, we have identified two Russian radiation medicine
experts who could participate in a dialogue with U.S. experts and
travel to the United States in October or November for further
consultations. The Russian experts are Dr. Andrey Bushmanov,
Director of the Clinical Radiation Medicine Department of the
Russian Institute of Biophysics, and Dr. Valeriy Krasnyuk, the head
of the Internal Contamination Medical Division at the Institute of
Biophysics. We have shared the Russian doctors' resumes and a list
of their scholarly articles with OES/IHA by e-mail (Ref B). The
Russian experts have requested a formal written invitation from the
USG (preferably from the Department of Health and Human Services) in
order to receive supervisory approval for their travel from the
Russian Federal Medical Biological Agency and the International
