Project Details
We seek highly motivated candidates to help us investigate the biological effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) using animal models of chronic disease. We are conducting pre-clinical studies exploring mechanism of action and safety in preparation for clinical trials.
We conduct research at the University and run a University-funded startup (Geminii, Inc.) which serves as our means of translating the science we do. We are a Howard Hughes laboratory located in MERF with funding from NIH, NSF & private foundations.
