Could a cell membrane provide an electromagnetic shield ?

Hello everybody!

I would like to ask you the following question:
If we apply an external electric field of 10 v/m very close
(~micrometers) to the surface of a neural cell membrane, what would be
the value of the electric field that is measured inside the cell.
Consider the cell membrane's resistance ~5 ohm/m2. Cell membrane has
also capasitance characteristics (Don't know the exact value).

Thanks in Advance
