10th Epidemiological Training Workshop for Radiobiologists

Dr. Ritsu Sakata
Department of Epidemiology

The 10th Epidemiological Training Workshop for Radiobiologists, sponsored by the Council of Radiation Effects Research Organizations,* was held at the Hiroshima RERF Auditorium August 19-20. The workshop was attended by about 40 participants from outside organizations, as was the case in last year’s event, engaged in a wide variety of work such as radiological technicians, government officials, and researchers outside the area of radiation research.
The number of repeat participants has increased each time, which meant that this year, the 10th annual meeting, more questions than ever were asked and actively discussed.
I would like to sincerely thank the workshop participants and lecturers, as well as the staff involved in holding the event.
