Abstract: The needs of a society are closely related to medical progress and its contribution. For instance, research on AIDS and cancer is carried out to meet the demand of contemporary society. Thyroid disease caused by iodine deficiency is one such challenge, and "radiation and thyroid" is another major research theme. Clinical investigation and basic research on radiation-induced thyroid diseases through molecular epidemiology have received much attention from scientists in Nagasaki because of our historical background of atomic bomb exposure and accumulated data of radiationinduced human diseases. We, therefore, introduce the experiences of thyroid examination in Nagasaki and Chernobyl and epidemiological analysis of the effect of radiation on thyroid diseases.
