Santi Tofani is a 62 years old medical physicist (Director of the Medical Physics Departments of Ivrea Hospital, Italy) with expertise in biophysics of electromagnetic fields.
Santi has more than fifteen years of teaching experience as adjoint professor of Physics at the Medical School University of Turin and at the Medical School Catholic University Rome.
He has participated as Lecturer in different Chinese, French and Japanese Universities (Zhejiang University, École Normal Supérieur de Paris, Tokyo University, respectively) as well as lecturer to different international courses related to biophysics of electromagnetic fields organized by WHO and NATO.
Santi has been research leader of different national and international research project funded by the Italian National Research Council (CNR), the Italian Department of Health, and the Magnetic Health Science Foundation in Tokyo, Japan.
From 1989 to 1994 he has been also research group leader at the U.S. National Institute of Standard and Technology, receiving a formal recognition by the United States Department of Commerce for the successful results and corresponding contribution to the international cooperation in science and technology.
From 1996 to 2003 he has been leader of an international cancer research project devoted to the use of the electromagnetic fields to cancer treatment. The project was conducted under the supervision of an international advisory board with experts from different health regulatory Institutions, among which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
From 2000 to 2005 he has been consultant of the European Research Project “Perform A”, devoted to the assessment of potential cancerogenicity of electromagnetic field emitted by mobile telephones.
From 2010 he has been devoted to the development of advanced techniques for image guided radiotherapy and from 2013 he is a Board member of the International Institute for Image Guided Radiotherapy, in New York.
In 2014 has been invited to write a review article on electromagnetic energy as a bridge between atomic and cellular levels in the genetic approach to cancer treatment. The paper appeared in “Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry” journal, 2015 issue.
Since 2015 Santi is collaborating in a research project devoted to the study of the potential antitumor efficacy of extremely low frequency modulated static electromagnetic fields. The project is conducted at the Zhejiang University School of Medicine and is founded by the National Science Foundation of Zhejiang Province, China.
