research on gene mutation and stability. Dr. Fox is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

JAMES F. HOBURG, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, where he has held academic positions since 1975. He received his B.S. from Drexel University and his S.M. and Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Hoburg's research interests include applied electromagnetics, magnetic shielding, and electromechanics. He has published 45 archival journal articles and 3 book chapters, and holds two U. S. patents. He has served as a consultant to numerous companies, has served on and chaired NSF graduate fellowship evaluation panels, and is a member of several professional organizations including the IEEE, the Electrostatics Society of America, and Sigma Xi. Dr. Hoburg has served on numerous academic committees at Carnegie Mellon University and is a winner of the university-wide undergraduate teaching award as well as student-selected departmental teaching awards in several years.

WALTER R. ROGERS, an Associate Professor of Environmental Sciences in the University of Texas School of Public Health and the Department of Family Practice at the Medical School of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, received his Ph.D. in physiological psychology from the University of Iowa in 1972. He became a Diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology in 1988; his specialty is neurotoxicology. Dr. Rogers joined the University of Texas School of Public Health in September, 1997, after 23 years at Southwest Research Institute, an independent, not-for-profit R&D; organization. There he directed a large USA-Japan research program examining the effects of 60-Hz electric and magnetic fields on operant and social behavior and on the neuroendocrine system of the baboon. He served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Bioelectromagnetics Society. He served on the NIEHS working group. He also studied the cardiopulmonary interactions of cigarette smoking, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and exercise in baboons. Other experiments examined the development of cigarette habituation and the effects of maternal smoking on the fetus and neonate. He has conducted combustion toxicology experiments and examined the neurobehavioral effects of organophosphates; he also is familiar with pre-clinical testing of new drugs and devices. Dr. Roger's current research is an effort to develop a rat model for neurobehavioral sensitization to inhaled substances: the goal is to demonstrate the phenomenon and then to study the basic mechanisms of sensitivity to low-level chemical exposures.

JAN A. J. STOLWIJK, Ph.D. is the Susan D. Bliss Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health, Emeritus, at the Yale University School of Medicine. He was chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health from 1981–1989, and from 1993–1994. Research interests have included photomorphogenesis in plants, studies of the measurement of thermal pain and of thermoregulatory physiology in exercise and environmental exposures. Mathematical simulation studies of thermophysiology and thermoregulation were developed from such studies. He has been a member of a number of Research Council committees of possible health effects of electromagnetic fields, and
