Dr. Gerry Thomas, Director, Chernobyl Tissue Bank and Lady Barbara Judge from United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority visited Fukushima and stopped by at FMU to have exchanges with research staff of the university. At the meeting, Dr. Thomas introduced what Chernobyl Tissue Bank is and how it works. From FMU side, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki explained the Thyroid Ultrasound Examination. Drs. Yasumura, Waguri, Sakai, and Niwa of FMU joined the meeting as well. Dr. Thomas and the members of FMU exchanged views on the outcome of the ongoing examination in Fukushima.
The meeting was very informative and Dr. Gerry Thomas told that she would come to Fukushima in October again. We decided to meet her again then.
