SEG Member, PG HF Guidelines

John Tattersall is a Principal Scientist in the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), a government Agency which provides research and advice for the UK Ministry of Defence and other government departments, and an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Southampton. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Nottingham in 1984, for work on neuromuscular physiology in molluscs. From 1983 to 1986, he was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Physiology at the University of Bristol, investigating spinal cord pathways involved in visceral pain. In 1986, he joined the Ministry of Defence to set up in vitro electrophysiological techniques for investigating the mechanisms of anticholinesterases and antidotes. He began studying the interactions of electromagnetic fields with biological systems in 1995, initially using these techniques to investigate effects on excitable cells and tissues. His current research interests are mainly in the biological effects of pulsed fields. He is a member of the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Standards and was one of the two UK representatives for COST BM0704, “Emerging EMF Technologies and Health Risk Management”. He was appointed a Member of the ICNIRP Scientific Expert Group (SEG) in March 2013.
