European network for innovative uses of EMFs in biomedical applications
Európska sieť pre inovatívne využitie elektro-magnetických polí v biomedicínskych aplikáciach
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Teplan Michal PhD.
Annotation:The Action will provide a cooperative framework to support the research on beneficial biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and their use in biomedical applications. Research on biological effects of EMFs has traditionally focused on health risks. Inspired by promising recent studies on useful biomedical EMF interactions and applications, this Action will focus on beneficial effects, aiming for breakthrough results, new discoveries and innovative biomedical technologies. The Action will provide a better understanding of underlying physical and biological interaction mechanisms, related to both cancer and non-cancer applications, filling the gaps in the present state of knowledge. Ultimately, the Action will aim to contribute to development and optimization of innovative EMF-based medical devices and procedures, which will be safer, more efficient and less invasive. Interdisciplinarity of the proposed topic and significance of the expected outcomes require a concerted research network at the European level.
Duration: 16.4.2014 - 15.4.2018

Moduly registrátorov taktových sérií RTS-02
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Krušinský Dušan
Duration: 18.2.2016 - 31.12.2017

Exploring physical basis of electromagnetic field interactions with biomolecules, cells and tissue
Skúmanie fyzikálnych základov interakcií elektromagnetických polí s biomolekulami, bunkami a tkanivom
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Mgr. Teplan Michal PhD.
Annotation:This project is focused on theoretical and experimental characterization of electromagnetic properties of biosystems from the level of subcellular biomolecular structures to a tissue level. The intention is to gain more information about the biological response to electromagnetic fields in a wider range of frequencies. New approaches will be developed for obtaining electromagnetic characteristics of subcellular/cellular structures and tissues with direct path to diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Methods for measurement and modelling of the biological response of various biosystems to external application of electromagnetic fields will be examine. Building of electromagnetic stimulation and monitoring system based on impedance spectroscopy will serve for investigation of electrical and other physiological properties of biosystems.
Duration: 1.1.2015 - 31.12.2017

Synchronization and causality in complex systems: time series methods
Synchronizácia a kauzalita v zložitých systémoch: Metódy analýzy časových radov
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: RNDr. Krakovská Anna CSc.
Annotation:Two fundamentally different approaches to detect interactions and direction of coupling (causality in the Granger sense) will be tested and compared using benchmark data generated by different mathematical models. Common and complementary features of the approaches will be identified and criteria for informed choice of an appropriate method for a particular application will be proposed. The acquired knowledge and developed computer algorithms based on originally advanced mathematical methods will be applied in analyses of experimental time series recording brain dynamics and climate variability.
Duration: 1.1.2015 - 31.12.2017
