2007 Outstanding Leadership: Sadao Hattori, PhD

At the forefront of hormesis, for over 20 years Sadao Hattori has been a proponent of the hormetic effect of radiation. Having done extensive research in radiation hormesis and encouraging his colleagues to focus their studies in this direction as well, Dr. Hattori’s extensive work, research, and lectures have been instrumental in bringing an understanding and appreciation of the low-dose effect to the scientific and medical communities. Dr. Hattori is now working to create a hormesis medical society in Japan. The International Dose-Response Society salutes Dr. Hattori’s work and efforts as he is at the vanguard of hormesis. We are honored to award him with this first award for outstanding leadership.
