Prof. Yuri Grigoriev

Professor Yuri Grigoriev's specializations are in radiobiology of non-ionizing and ionizing radiation, physiology and neurophysiology especially under extreme environmental conditions. His scientific interests lie in the fields of the biological effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, including physiological mechanisms and the bio-effects of low level radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF). He has worked in these fields since 1949.

He is Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP), Deputy Chairman of Radiobiology Scientific Council of Academy of Sciences, member of International Advising Committee on WHO EMF Project, IEEE member, permanent member of the US Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS), Academician of Academy of Electro technical sciences of Russia, member of board Journal of Radiation Biology and Ecology (RAS). He is a major researcher of radiobiology and hygiene for non-ionizing radiation laboratory of Federal Medical Biophysical Center of Federal Medical Biological agency (Moscow).

He has used a variety of different physiological models: imprinting, isolating frog heart, chicken embryo and animals. Mainly his work has involved EMF RF exposure on the nervous system and the brain (EEG) and using modern vestibular stimulation techniques. He has been working safety standards for EMF RF exposure and for space radiation. He has been studying the problem of influence on the organism of weakening geomagnetic fields (effects of magnetic deprivation) for more than 15 years.

Publications: more 300 papers in refereed journals, 15 books (biological effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, extreme environmental physiology). He has supervised more than successful 67 doctoral dissertations. He was a member of the Governmental Commission on the Chernobyl Accident (1986).
