Advanced physical methods in cell biology and nanomedicine

The aim of this project is to develop and optimize advanced physical methods in terms of application of high-magnetic fields (HMFs), plasma medicine and magnetically controlled stem cells delivery for biomedical applications. Such studies will provide novel fundamental knowledge in understanding the biological effects of magnetic fields and low-temperature plasma on molecular and cellular levels which would result into the development of new therapeutic strategies. In a short term, this project will provide fabrication of micro-magnetic arrays producing high-gradient magnetic fields, design and optimization of the device for the low-temperature atmospheric plasma generation, design and optimization of devices generating the magnetic fields of the required field strength, gradients, and direction for targeted stem cells delivery. Furthermore, microscopy and biological imaging research group will be organized in the frame of Joint Laboratory of Biophysics of IoP and IEM.
