Novel integrated approaches for research of biomedical effects of pulsed electric fields
Nové integrované prístupy pre výskum biomedicínskych účinkov pulzných elektrických polí
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Mgr. Teplan Michal PhD.
Annotation:Intense pulsed electric fields have already use and great further potential for novel applications in biomedicine and food industry. However, the mechanistic details of the action of pulsed electric fields on the plasma membrane and especially on the intracellular level are still not clear. This project is focused on theoretical and experimental characterization of the effects of pulsed electric fields from the level of subcellular biomolecular structures to a cellular level. We aim to develop and employ approaches based on impedance spectroscopy and chemiluminescence detection which will enable us to explore the most prominent bioeffects of pulsed electric fields in a real-time, non-invasive and label-free manner. The major technological novelty will be in the integration of these monitoring tools to an automatic programmable experimental platform. The results of the project will provide new methods in the research of effects of electromagnetic fields on living cells and will bring future medical applications closer to reality.
