The ACEBR is a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre of Excellence, 2013-17.
With the epidemic developments of mobile technologies and ever-growing mobile phone subscriptions world-wide, the electromagnetic energy (EME) that powers this technology is now widespread, as is community concern about the possibility of associated health effects. Responding to this concern, the ACEBR will embark on a multidisciplinary 5-year research program to address the most pressing radiofrequency (RF) radiation exposure questions to better protect the health of the Australian community.
Science and Wireless
The ACEBR hosts an annual forum called Science and Wireless. This event brings the community together with academia, industry and government, to discuss and debate important public health issues from electromagnetic field exposure.
