Electric & Magnetic Fields Bioeffects
ORNL has lead role in coordinating DOE effort--program mgt., conferences, Q/A, publications, etc. on Engineering and Biological Effects. Good relations with EPRI. Also issue RFPs for DOE. Biology research looking for theoretical models, going outside of EMF community to main technical/academic societies (e.g., engineering study of current tomography of the human body).
Staff are urging more attention be given to what it would cost to mitigate EMF, for use in social risk/benefit decisions.
