Electromagnetics for Biomedical Sciences

On Tuesday, 7th of May 2019, the IEEE NTUA EMB Society and the IEEE NTUA Student Branch in coordination with the Laboratory of Electronic Sensors of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, will co-host the talk “Electromagnetics for Biomedical Sciences”.

The talk is taking place at the Amphitheater of the NTUA Computer Centre Building.

Main speaker is Evangelos Christoforou, Professor of Electronic Materials at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering NTUA and Director of the Laboratory of Electronic Sensors, who will present the applications of electromagnetic fields on medicine.

Electromagnetics find significant applications in engineering and particularly in biomedical engineering. A first example of modern applications of e/m fields is hyperthermia, by means of binging oligopeptide covered magnetic nanoparticles with anti-some over-expressed tumor cells. RF e/m waves heat magnetic particles resulting in hot spot tumor identification. Other examples are related to transcranial magnetic stimulation, trying to monitor and treat brain Diseases. Finally selective magnetic separation can be used for ultra pure polyphenol trapping, as well to heavy ion trapping, indirectly leading to health advances by means of natural pharmaceutical development and water treatment respectively.
