FALL RADON TESTING: Long-term radon test kits are now available.  

Thank you for your interest in testing with the Evict Radon research initiative.  

Evict Radon is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s large and worsening radon-gas exposure problem, a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. Evict Radon embraces research strategies across disciplines to gain the information necessary to:

  1. Understand what type of property produces a high or low radon environment, and why
  2. Identify who in society are the most at risk from radon exposure
  3. Make meaningful changes to policy to engineer high radon out of our future buildings.

By testing your home with one of our non-profit, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping Evict Radon aligned researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Dr. Fintan Stanley obtained his Ph.D. from the Goodarzi laboratory in 2018, having defined the early research of Evict Radon in both a population health and radiobiological sense. His projects lead to the 2017 and 2019 studies that describe Canadian radon exposure and the increase of radon in newer Canadian homes. In addition, he lead our 2020 study describing new technology to study alpha particle biology. For his work, Fintan received a Governor General Gold medal in 2019.

Mr. James Johnston worked within the Goodarzi laboratory from 2016-2018, having completed a Bachelor of Health Science degree at the University of Calgary. During his time in the laboratory, James screened for novel small molecule compounds that might block alpha particle radiation exposure’s negative effects. His work was funded by a grant from the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Foundation of the USA and published in our 2020 study describing novel alpha particle irradiation technology.

Mr. Markus Nielsen worked under the guidance of the Goodarzi laboratory in Summer 2020, having obtained his BSc in biology from the University of Calgary in 2019. Currently attending medical school at the University of Alberta, Markus has contributed to our understanding of Canadian radon exposure as a function of the built environment and has helped our teams develop radon awareness information catered for trainee and senior health professionals. This work will be released in 2021.

Mr. Siavash Zarezadeh worked within the Goodarzi laboratory as a high school student in 2016 and completed a Bachelor of Health Science degree at the University of Calgary. He worked under the guidance of Dr. Fintan Stanley. He helped generate the data for our 2017 findings that described radon exposure in Southern Alberta and the first knowledge that newer homes in this region contain higher radon.

Mr. Tyler Warnock worked within the Brenner laboratory as a project and summer student from 2019-2020 and is currently in Medical School. Using the newly acquired and analyzed radon exposure data from the Evict Radon studies published in 2017 and 2019, he helped calculate new radon-attributable cancer risk estimates for Alberta and Saskatchewan. This work is still underway, and we hope it will be released in 2021. Tyler is currently attending medical school at the University of Calgary.
