Full title: Investigation of millimeter wave effects on cellular systems using a metabolomic approach
Duration: Dec. 2014 – Jul. 2017
Funded by: French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES)
The main objective of the BEMAM project is to investigate potential biological effects of millimeter-wave radiations on cells using a metabolomic approach. This project brings together experts in cellular and molecular biology, chemical analysis, and electromagnetics. We employ the high resolution mass spectrometry interfaced with liquid chromatography to simultaneously measure hundreds of metabolites (small molecules whose chemical structure is related to the cell metabolism) as a functional readout of the cellular state.
