At the Institute of Public Health Ia?i, bioelectromagnetic research started late 1992, with epidemiological studies of health effects due to occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields. Later, biological experiments have been carried out on animals and various vegetal systems. To achieve electromagnetic exposure of biological bodies, an exposure system has been designed and built: a transverse electromagnetic cell optimized for biological experiments. Our group also got involved in health protection issues like measurement of environmental levels of electromagnetic fields and assessment of human exposure. Research activities concerning characterization and limitation of electromagnetic exposure included calculation and optimization of exposure metrics and exposure limits. To help good practice in the domain of electromagnetic exposure determination, we developed methodologies for electromagnetic field evaluation and measurement. The results of our research also contributed to the development of national and international exposure standards and of standardized methods for compliance testing.
