Representative Office of Nagasaki University in Belarus


Location  Minsk, Belarus

Established  August 2008

Run by  The Atomic Bomb Disease Institute

About This Office
Nagasaki University along with the Atomic Bomb Disease Institute has been active in researching the health effects of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident and improving the medical health situation of residents since the 1990s. The Representative Office of Nagasaki University in Belarus was established in August 2008 in Minsk as a joint research center to study the effects of radiation on human health in the former USSR countries of Belarus, the Ukraine, and Russia.

Our main objectives and activities are as follows:
○ Coordinate joint research with partner institutions
○ Send Nagasaki University medical students to short-term study sessions (research seminars)
○ Invite researchers to Japan to participate in academic conferences, training, and to act as guest professors
○ Arrange Nagasaki University researchers’ trips to Belarus
○ Facilitate remote lectures and distance learning

We are also arranging research activities between Japan and Russia as well as with partner institutions in Belarus to promote the Inter-University Exchange Project, “Japan-Russia Intercollegiate Cooperative Project for Nurturing Leaders in Disaster and Radiation Health Sciences,” for which Nagasaki was selected in 2017. As part of this project, the Gomel-Nagasaki Educational Training Center was established in October 2018 in the area affected by the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant incident.
