Brief description A new Australian Centre for Radiofrequency Bioeffects Research (ACRBR) commenced operation in early 2004. The Centre is funded by a five year Australian government research grant, with in kind contributions from the five participating research institutions: RMIT University, Monash University, Swinburne University of Technology, the Institute of Medical and Veterinary Science and the Telstra Research Laboratories. The Centre will be administered from RMIT University in Melbourne and will form the hub of RF bioeffects research conducted in Australia. It is anticipated that such an integrated program will engender more comprehensive research than could be achieved by disparate research groups working in isolation. A dominant theme in the Centre's initial research effort is testing for RF neurological effects, including: short- and long-term effects on nervous tissue in experimental animals and tissue cultures; cognitive and EEG human studies; provocation and population studies of symptoms associated with RF exposures; modelling of RF molecular interactions, and; analytical studies of RF human dosimetry. The Centre will train a new generation of Australian RF bioeffects scientists, provide information to the public via a web site, and assist the development of government and standards policies in RF safety.
