Mr. Matthes is the German expert in this program that currently reviews scientific evidence in the radio frequency area. ICNIRP is also reviewing the scientific literature in that field. At that organization, Mr. Matthes is chairing the standing committee on physics and technology.


David L. McCormick, Ph.D., D.A.B.T., is senior vice-president and director of IIT Research Institute (IITRI). At IITRI, Dr. McCormick leads the research activities of approximately 150 scientists, technicians, and support staff working in the fields of toxicology, carcinogenesis and cancer prevention, microbiology, molecular biology, and biodefense. He also serves as chairman of Technology Research, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of IITRI. Dr. McCormick is the IITRI professor of biology at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in physiology and toxicology. He joined the IITRI staff in 1979 and the IIT faculty in 1982. Dr. McCormick received his A.B. degree from Middlebury College (Middlebury, VT) with a joint major in chemistry and biology. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in environmental medicine/biology from New York University (New York, NY). He is a diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology. Dr. McCormick’s primary research activities are in the areas of carcinogenesis and cancer prevention, preclinical and environmental toxicology, and the biological effects of magnetic fields. He has published more than 225 research papers, abstracts, and reviews in these areas. He currently serves as principal investigator on four multiyear research programs supported by the National Cancer Institute, and is principal investigator on the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Toxicology Program project entitled “Studies to Evaluate the Toxic and Carcinogenic Potential of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation.” Dr. McCormick serves on the editorial boards of three scientific journals (Toxicology, Nutrition and Cancer, and The International Journal of Cancer Prevention) and regularly reviews manuscripts submitted for publication in Cancer Research; Clinical Cancer Research; Carcinogenesis; Molecular Cancer Therapeutics; Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers, and Prevention; Radiation Research; and Bioelectromagnetics; among other journals. He has served on several dozen grant and contract review committees for the National Cancer Institute and other funding agencies. Dr. McCormick is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research, the Society of Toxicology, and the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine.
