Dr. Tatsukawa has been engaged in health examinations and research as a research scientist in the Department of Clinical Studies since April 2004. Before joining RERF, she had worked as a physician in hospitals and clinics. Her current research interest is to investigate the association between radiation exposure and abnormalities in glucose and lipid metabolism (diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, etc.) in A-bomb survivors. She is also conducting research with interest in health effects from radiation on those exposed in their mother’s uterus (in-utero survivors) and those born to exposed parents (second-generation A-bomb survivors).
