Soon after the Chernobyl accident in 1986, he organized an expedition for cytogenetic examination of liquidators of the accident conse- quences, which allowed timely assessment of radiation damage in occupational groups during the first months after the accident. To conduct a long-term cytogenetic monitoring of Chernobyl workers, a stationary labora- tory was organized. Using novel cytogenetic methods of biological dosimetry, Shevchenko and his coworkers have evaluated the genetic risk and made prognoses for the effect of radiation on humans. In parallel, a long- term combined survey of radiation genetic effects on the populations of plants and animals in the 30-km acci- dent zone was conducted. The results of these studies were used by the Gov- ernmental Commission in Chernobyl for evaluating possible cytogenetic consequences of the accident for humans, the flora, and the fauna of the region. These results were summarized in the monograph Conse- quences of the Chernobyl Meltdown for Human Health, published in 1999 in New York.
