Dear friends,
With deep sadness I would like to inform you that my beloved PhD and Postdoc supervisor, Mentor and Friend Professor Lukas H. Margaritis passed away yesterday after a long fight with cancer.
His funeral will take place at 11am on Monday in Athens.
Lukas was a spectacular teacher and internationally recognized researcher, a pioneer in establishing Cell Biology, Electron Microscopy and EMF research in Greece.
He was dedicated to research until the end of his life.
He was a great boss and a real leader!
He was treating everyone with kindness.
Greece lost one of its greatest minds :(
All the academic community is mourning...

Dear Admantia,
it is with sadness that I read your unlucky communication.
Lucas was a great biologist. I knew him as a pioneer of the study of dynamics of animal populations under the pressure of environmental pollution, peculiarly physical pollution.
His research was not limited to the effects of such pollution on individuals but the focus of his research was shifted towards a higher level, highliting the shadows of the complexity.
Dynamics of population and animal behaviour are not phenomena that can be explained with reductionism, on contrary they witness the existance of collective properties that are meaningless at elementary level. An open minded scientific interest that did Lucas so near to me and to my scientific interests, beyond the interest for electromagnetic hazard, rather aiming to investigate bioelectromagnetism, thus the two matrixes of life: waves and water.

The International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) is a non-profit organization that promotes research to protect public health from electromagnetic fields and develops the scientific basis and strategies for assessment, prevention, management and communication of risk, based on the precautionary principle

The Precautionary Principle

The Precautionary Principle states, when there are indications of possible adverse effects, though they remain uncertain, the risks from doing nothing may be far greater than the risks of taking action to control these exposures. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof from those suspecting a risk to those who discount it.

Our Resolutions

The Venice Resolution, initiated June 6, 2008, follows the Benevento Resolution, first issued September 19, 2006. These Resolutions are signed by scientists, engineers and medical doctors who have been doing EMF research and working internationally on electromagnetic fields health and safety. The combination of their training, experience and the many contributions they have made in conducting and publishing, represents hundreds of years of expertise and places them at the forefront of knowledge about EMF.  These resolutions and information on how those interested in signing the Venice Resolution could apply to do so, may be reviewed by going to RESOLUTION section.

Other Resolutions

We have created a historical record of the international scientific resolutions on electromagnetic fields, dating from 1998 when the Vienna Resolution called for application of the precautionary principle. > go to the OTHER RESOLUTIONS page
