Invitation to 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields

Invitation to IFMBE members


You are kindly invited to the 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food & Environmental Technologies (WC2015), to be held in Portorož, Slovenia, from 6th to 10th of September, 2015.

This IFMBE-endorsed event will be the first scientific event of its kind, bringing togeteher researchers and users of electroporation-based technologies from academic institutions and industry. Over a period of roughly three decades the field of electroporation-based and related technologies has been characterized by rapid research and development and wide diversification of its application areas.

Electroporation-based and related technologies are all about the use of high-energy electromagnetic fields to modify properties and function of biological cells from the level of individual cells to whole organisms. These methods can be and are successfully used in a wide range of applications from treatment of tumors in cinical environment to industrial-scale extraction of nutrients and purification of water.

We believe that the topic of electroporation-based technologies may be of interest to a wider community of medical and biological engineers.
