Through HICARE training course, I learned lots of advanced techniques that will be very useful for my future research. As training organization, Dept. of Statistics in RERF gave me wonderful lectures for cancer risk assessment methods and lots of advices for my research. And I was able to see their efforts in order to get more exact and reliable results in radiation research. Their collaboration work with other radiation research fields was also very impressive.
Every people I met in Hiroshima were so kind and gentle. Every place I visited in Hiroshima was including the desire for peace. I will remember this historical and peaceful city for long time, and hope many researchers in Korea will be able to participate in HICARE training program.
Finally, I really appreciate many members of HICARE and RERF for their devoted assistance and help during my stay.

Medical Activities in Korea:

I perform the research on radiation health effect at RHRI (Radiation Health Research Institute) in Korea. I am involved in epidemiological study on Korean Nuclear Power Plant workers and study on the probability of causation for cancers occurred to Korean radiation workers. And I conduct the study on dose-response model for biological dosimetry data. Statistical consulting for other researchers is also one of my activities.
