The Center for Bioelectrics was developed as a research initiative of Old Dominion University in partnership with EVMS. Its mission is to increase scientific knowledge and understanding of how electromagnetic fields and ionized gases interact with biological cells and to apply this knowledge to the development of medical diagnostics and therapeutics, and to environmental decontamination. The center is located on the fifth floor of the Norfolk Public Health Building.

Demonstrations of projects at the center and a reception follow the program.
