Frank Barnes Frank Barnes, PhD

Dr. Frank Barnes is a Distinguished Professor in the Biomedical group of the Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering Department at the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as a member of the National Academy of Engineering. 

The Barnes Research Group is current looking at the effects of electric and magnetic fields on biological systems. We have shown that we can change the growth rates of cancers by changing the magnetic fields. Our work is of interest to people worried about the safety of cell phones and living near power lines with possible applications in sending signals to biological systems.
