17 Oct 2013 The First IARC-FMU Joint Workshop successfully concluded

On 17 October, FMU hosted jointly a workshop with the International Agency for Research on Cancer as well as Danish Cancer Society, IARC’s collaborating institute to seek possibilities of future collaborative studies in radiation epidemiology at Fukushima Medical University. The delegates, led by Dr Joachim Schüz, included Drs Ausra Kesminiene, Isabelle Thierry-Chef, Isabelle Deltour, Sara Schonfeld, and Pernille Envold Bidstrup. Joined by FMU Vice-Presidents Masafumi Abe, MD PhD and Shunichi Yamashita, MD PhD and the Dean Hitoshi Ohto, MD PhD, the workshop brought together around 30 scientists and stakeholders from IARC and FMU. Each presentation by IARC and FMU faculty members was followed by a lively discussion regarding mental health, dosimetry and radiation and health.

FMU and IARC intend to conduct more workshops and events that will encourage further collaborative studies.
