The Biomagnetics Micro Dosimetry System (BMDS) program will design, model, and simulate a microdosimetry system that can measure and create a three dimensional map of weak radiofrequency signals in biological organisms. The heart of the BMDS project is the front end called a Quinc, that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution.The Quinc based front end is a valuable tool in the investigation of unexplained biological phenomena, like the following issues:How do Iridescent bacteria dynamically organize themselvesHow do ciliated epithelium of tissues, from corals to the human digestive track coordinate their movementsDoes radiofrequency energy explain the immuno-suppression on foreign cells by host tissue (or vice versa)What causes the pace making and directionality of neuronal activity and regenerationAre radio-frequencies involves in signal transduction across tissueCan radiofrequencies alter highly coordinated behaviors in organismDo macro-molecules, such as melanin, ferritin and porphyrins interfere with RFsTests designed to address these questions, featuring the BMDS hardware, will be developed under this program.
