Currently recruiting

IHMRI's Clinical Research and Trials Unit regularly recruits members of the Illawarra community to participate in clinical trials. We are currently seeking participants for:


Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Study

IHMRI researchers want to hear from local residents who experience headaches, nausea and other negative health symptoms after being exposed to electromagnetic energy (EMF) from mobile phones, base stations, Wi-Fi and smart meters. 

The researchers, from the Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects (ACEBR), are seeking volunteers for a study which aims to understand the phenomenon known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), where sufferers associate a range of health problems to EMF exposure. 

People who have experienced symptoms for at least six months and report acute symptoms which develop and abate shortly after exposure to EMF are invited to help the researchers gather more solid evidence on the role of EMF exposure in the formation of their symptoms.
