Igor Belyaev Ph.D.
Physics Radio Biological Research


Dr. Belyaev received a diploma in physical engineering (Master of Science Degree) in Radiation Physics and Dosimetry from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (Moscow Technical University) in 1981; a Ph.D. in Radiobiology from the Institute of Biophysics, USSR Academy of Science, Pushchino, USSR, in 1986; a Doctor of Science Degree in Genetics from St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1994; was named an Associate Professor of Toxicological Genetics by the Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2004.

From 1981 to 1994, he held the positions of Research Scientist and Head of the Laboratory at the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute. From 1994 to 2006, he served as a Research Scientist at Stockholm University, Sweden, and as a Professor at the Institute of General Physics, Russian Academy of Science. 

He is presently the Head of Radiobiological Department at the Biomedical Research Center, Slovak Republic. Prof. Belyaev has been studied biological and health effects of electromagnetic fields including millimeter waves since 1986. He is now or formerly a member of: the Working Group of the International EMF Project of the World Health Organization, the Working group for the evaluation of RF carcinogenicity of the International Agency on Research in Cancer; the Stakeholder Dialogue Group on EMF, Health systems and Products, Risk Assessment, Health and Consumers of the Directorate-General, of the European Commission; the EMF Working group of the European Academy for Environmental Medicine, the Memorial Fund Committee of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, the Swedish National Committee for Radioscience, the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, and the European Association for Cancer Research. 

In 2011, he was awarded by the Bioelectromagnetics Society for the most influential paper in Bioelectromagnetics 2006-2010.
