Research Line
Non-Ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation and Health

Description

This line of research aims at reviewing, discovering and disseminating knowledge about the impact of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields on human health, in both senses, i.e., its bioeffects, as well as how radiofrequency telecommunications can be applied to benefit healthcare, security and well-being, using social research. This line overlaps with healthcare informatics, insofar as Dr. Sabbatini coordinates research, development and innovation on mobile health (mHealth), such as software and applications development for mobile devices.

Prof. Renato M.E. Sabbatini, who has both a biomedical and a technological background and interdisciplinary experience, is the research group leader and main investigator. He has an experience of 9 years in the field, in the activities listed below, and is one of the few biomedical scientists in Latin America with expertise on the biological and medical aspects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation fields.

Beginning/End

March 2003-present.

Current research projects (4)

  • SGSMS: a client-server structure and software using Java-enabled mobile phones for messages and gathering user input for the management of chronic diseases
  • A survey of the population use of cell phones for personal safety and health in three cities in Brazil
  • Knowledge of occupational physicians and technicians on the health impact of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields
  • Review of Latin American literature in high-frequency electromagnetic fields and human health
