Research overview:
With latent periods of 4~10 years after the nuclear experiments at Marshall Islands and the Chernobyl disaster, many irradiated people, in particular, those who have encountered the Chernobyl disaster at the age of 0~1, contracted thyroid cancer. In order to clarify the carcinogenetic features of radiation from the molecular biological viewpoint, we have started a field investigation near Chernobyl, cooperating with the local facilities.
