Brief presentation of the institution

 Bioelectromechanical Systems is a cross disciplinary field that combines engineering and science from the nano to the macro level. In our laboratory, we have developed technology for tissue viability detection, picoliter sample management, and imaging for molecular medicine. Using electrical feedback to perform complex procedures in biotechnology with precision and control, we have established robust methods for single cell analysis, selective cell concentration, and cancer therapy

Main Electroporation related topics

Irreversible Electroporation (IRE) ablates tumors by irreversibly permeabilizing tumor cells through a series of short intense electric pulses from electrodes placed into or around the body. The permanent nanopores in the cells of undesirable tissue eventually leads to cell death without the use of potentially harmful chemotherapeutic drugs.
