Event Type :
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thousands of residents in the two cities lost their lives from the explosions or soon after from radiation sickness. With joint Japanese and American support, the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) and its predecessor have systematically followed the health effects of the survivors, the hibakusha, and their offspring. Studies on the atomic bombing survivors have been the primary basis for estimating the health risks from radiation exposure and setting radiation protection standards worldwide. This webinar will feature presentations from the RERF Director and other investigators on the history of the Foundation and its achievements, current research, and future directions.
Note: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this meeting is online only.
