In Memoriam: Valeri V. Lednev

Valeri V. LednevAs we go to press, we learn of the death of V. V. Lednev, whose extension of an atomic spectroscopy model began a long series of efforts to find mathematical models to describe the mechanisms behind observed effects from magnetic fields on biological systems. While we gather further details, we invite BEMS members with remembrances of his life, his work, and how they impacted bioelectromagnetics, to send them to prior to 17 April 2009 for publication in conjunction with his obituary (to appear in the March/April 2009 newsletter).
