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 that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution. The front end is a valuable tool in the investigation of unexplained biological phenomena, like the following issues: ● How do Iridescent bacteria dynamically organize themselves? ● How do ciliated epithelium of tissues, from corals to the human digestive track coordinate their movements? ● Does 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 regeneration? ● Are radio-frequencies involves in signal transduction across tissue? ● Can radiofrequencies alter highly coordinated behaviors in organism? ● Do macro-molecules, such as melanin, ferritin and porphyrins interfere with RFs? Tests designed to address these questions, featuring the BMDS hardware, will be executed under this program.
