as an engineer in physics and chemistry at the Industrial Physics and Chemistry Higher Educational Institution (ESPCI) in Paris, he joined the CNRS in 1979 and did research on the physical chemistry of the troposphere. Since 1984, Dr. Veyret has turned towards the new field of research on biological effects of electromagnetic fields (bioelectromagnetics). He is now head of the Bioelectromagnetics Laboratory of the École Pratique des Hautes Études. His research team in Bordeaux is composed of about 15 scientists, biologists, and physicists. He was one of the founders of the European Bioelectromagnetics Association (EBEA) in 1989. He belongs to the main commission of ICNIRP and is a member of the International Committee of the Swedish Radiation Protection Authority (SSI). Dr. Veyret has authored more than 75 papers in peer-reviewed journals and co-authored several national and international expert-group reports on EMF and health. He was the chairman of the French expert group on “Extremely Low Frequency Fields and Health” and is a consultant for the French Agency for Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (AFSSET) on the same topic. He is currently a consultant with the World Health Organization (WHO), developing a Web-based EMF course for young scientists working in bioelectromagnetics, and has served as the chairman of the RF research recommendation committee of WHO. He was the coordinator of the European program Perform-B and was an external reviewer for the RAMP 2001 and TeraHertz-Bridge European programs. Dr. Veyret was awarded the 2007 Medal of the French International Union of Radio Science. Dr. Veyret is a member of the scientific council (consulting board) of Bouygues Telecom, which is one of the three French mobile phone providers. His laboratory has contracts with Alcatel and some of the mobile telephone providers to write scientific reports and conduct research.
