The Bioelectromagnetism team is involved in research on the biological effects of
electromagnetic fields (CEM) both at low and high frequencies,
especially at a cellular level.


Research objectives

The research themes concern:

-

effect
s

on immune system cells at different levels:
these include proliferation,
apoptosis and gene expression.

-

effects
at a genetic level
on eukaryote and prokaryote cells, especially gene
transposition

-

effects on nerve cells and nerve tissue, both at a

l
evel of base biological targets, such as
proliferation, vitality and gene expression, and at the electrophysiological cell response
level, in particular using patch clamp techniques and extracellular potential recording

-

interaction mechanisms especially at

the ion channel level


Keywords:
immune cells and CEM; nerve cells and CEM; interaction mechanisms;

The range of subjects addressed is linked to the fact that at Bologna a research collaboration
was created in which many laboratories participate, these in
