Bioelectromagnetics (BEMS) is the study of the interaction of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields with biological systems. These investigations range from considerations of basic biophysical mechanisms underlying the biological effects of magnetic fields to delineation of the possible clinical (both therapeutic and diagnostic) applications of magnetic fields.  Electromagnetic fields are produced by a variety of sources including: electrical distribution systems, medical diagnostic systems, and fields used specifically for the treatment of disease. BEMS was established to provide research, education and consultation services relating to magnetic fields and their roles in biological processes.
