-I would like to express my deepest respect to Dr. Hayashi, Dr. Tashiro and Dr. Kamada.

Dr. Hayashi – It is a unique and valuable research in the world. I expect further updates in your research and papers. Thank you for sharing the worthwhile research results.

Dr.Tashiro - It was a really impressive lecture you gave us. Since it is closely related to my research, I enjoyed your lecture with great interest. I expect further progress with your research in the region of low dose.

Dr.Kamada – It’s great honor to meet you. Thank you for your sharing the research results  you have devoted yourself to. As a doctor, I would like to work hard at doing my research.


-Since I learned about health check-ups for Korean A-Bomb survivors and the aging problem, I will share the information with my colleagues and staff members. In addition, I will share a variety of research results on dose evaluation and the diseases caused by radiation dose in Hiroshima.


-I sincerely respect people in Hiroshima who underwent the terrible disaster,  overcame it, and eventually completed the recovery from it. As a surgery who can understand the cruelty of disaster scenes, I had truly important experiences. It was also good to me to know about the ongoing research on the radiation effects of low dosimetry.
