On going research is focused on the effects of various kinds and sources of electromagnetic radiation (mobile phones, blue tooth, wireless DECT, baby monitor, microwave oven, wi-fi, magnetic field, e.t.c.) on the reproduction and oogonesis of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Our recent activities are also focused on the irradiation of the model Rodent Mus musculus mouse in order to reveal defects on memory, behavior, reproduction, apoptosis and other lesions induced by non ionizing radiation. This recent work involves multidisciplinary approaches engaging the most sophisticated techniques, such as the Morris water Maze behavioral task, object recognition task, proteomics analysis, immunocytochemistry, confocal laser microscopy and electron microscopy.

Our results have been published in peer review journals (see list below) and have been also presented in the Hellenic Society for Biological sciences annual meetings and also during a special Conference  held in Thessaloniki on May 24, 25, 2008.

      Special attention has been given to the biological effects of mobile phone radiation (for the first time worldwide using real communication conditions) on model cell systems including oogenesis in Diptera, behavior and reproduction in rodents. The results have shown a decrease in the reproductive capacity of Drosophila and deficits in osteogenesis of newborn mice, as well as memory impairment following mobile phone radiation and have been published (see articles). Ongoing research is focused on the effects of cellular and molecular parameters caused by mobile phone radiation under a variety of normal operating conditions. For this purpose a large number of commercially available cellular phones and cordless telephones have been tested.

To date there is strong evidence that mobile phone use for more than 10 years increases the risk for brain tumors (see recent interview in CNBC U.S.A.

 http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?play=1&video=1366621223 )

Another issue that concerns us is the radiation emitted by cell phone masts. For this purpose we are performing filed measurements inside houses and schools in order to protect the citizens from excessive radiation levels even if those are within the Greek "safety levels". We strongly believe that a further reduction (below the 30% that the current law states) should be decided by the government and on that direction we provide interviews in the media and well documented advice whenever needed.
