Division of Radiation Effect

Home Research Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences Research Department Introduction Division of Radiation Effect

Purpose of research and development

To contribute to the development of radiology and for a healthy future; includes research on the impact of radiation on cells, tissues, and individuals

To realize such, the following research studies are conducted

  • Research on organ and tissue damage and recovery caused by radiation
  • Research on gene damage and recovery
  • System development for evaluation of radiation effect
  • Utilizing tissue regeneration research for radiation effect research
  • Research on modulation of side effects following radiation damage

Purpose of research and development

National research and development project
Modulation of biological signaling responses and overcoming of radiation resistance by radiation (Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology)
  • Development of modulation technology in radiation responses through characterization of biological signaling upon irradiation (No. 1 detailed task)
  • Analysis, assessment, and control of radiation response factors
Discovery of factors for radiation damage, and development of modulation technology (Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology)
