Brief presentation of the institution

The Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) of the Universitat Pomepu Fabra (UPF) hosts faculty and researchers in the field of Information and Communication Technologies. Through UPF's Polytechnic School (ESUP), the DTIC supports degrees in Telematics Engineering, Audiovisual Systems Engineering, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering. At the postgraduate level, the DTIC offers a number of master's degrees and a full Ph.D. program.

The DTIC's research activities are organized around groups pursuing a wide range of topics that include networking, wireless communications, multimedia, image and music processing, medical imaging, interactive technologies, artificial intelligence, data mining, and computational neuroscience, among others.

The DTIC is sited in UPF's Communication Campus, which was opened in 2009 and is located within the vibrant 22@ technological district of Barcelona. The campus features modern facilities for both research and teaching, in close proximity to other research institutions, industry, technology start-up clusters, and government agencies.

Main Electroporation related topics

Currently, and in the context of electroporation related topics, major directions pursued by the group headed by Antoni Ivorra are 1) to develop new electrode arrangements, devices and methodologies for electric field management in electroporation therapies, 2) to develop numerical models, and software tools, for treatment planning and 3) to participate in collaborative projects with life sciences researchers for demonstrating the use of electroporation treatments, and particularly of irreversible electroporation, in clinical applications.

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment
