Scientific advisory board
In cooperation with scientists and experts, the nonprofit organization diagnose:funk assesses the state of research on an ongoing basis. The members of the scientific advisory board share their expertise and guide the review and assessment work that analyzes scientific study findings to reflect the latest state of research on nonionizing radiation. Thus the scientific advisory board assures the quality of EMF:data.
