Associate Professor Hisako Saitoh appears in the BS12 documentary program

In October 2015, Associate Professor Hisako Saitoh established a voluntary association named "Japanese unidentified and missing persons response team/ JUMP" with eight dentists who worked at the morgues to identify the bodies of the Great East Japan Earthquake victims.
JUMP aims to build an identification system through multi-disciplinary collaboration in the event of a large-scale disaster and reduce the number of unidentified and missing people during peacetime. They conduct activities such as research on the identification systems used in the advanced countries, disaster victim training by multi-disciplinary collaboration, and seminars, and symposiums of identification training. Recently, JUMP's activities were reported on BS12 (twellv) and broadcasted nationwide free of charge. In addition, JUMP published "3.11 Identity-The Voice of Dentists Engaged in Identification Work to the Future-" (Price: 1,500 yen). It includes easy-to-understand explanations on how to identify unidentified persons, the realities faced in past disasters and accidents, and the voices of dentists not revealed previously.
