A statue of Igor Vasiljevich Kurchatov in Kurchatov Square in Ozyorsk, Russia. The first Soviet industrial reactor was commissioned on 19 June 1948 at the Mayak site near Ozyorsk; it was designed and operated under the scientific guidance of Kurchatov. Studies of the historical occupational exposure received by workers in this nuclear complex are highlighted in this special issue of Health Physics.
