Message from Professor 人類遺伝学研究分野:吉浦孝一郎
Department of Human Genetics,
Atomic Bomb Disease Institute, Nagasaki University
Professor Koh-ichiro Yoshiura

Research intended for analyses of genes and DNA are executed. We believe our mission in this institute is to uncover the effect of irradiation from the point of DNA. In this view, the research to demonstrate the association between DNA variations/mutations and disease is proceeding, and eventually analyses for individual disease have much importance in our laboratory. We will do one by one what we can do with utmost effort.
