About EMF-Med conference

The conference is the outcome and the final event of a 4-year project COST EMF-MED. EMF-Med world conference is organized to promote systematical research and development of EMF-Med topics: beneficial biomedical interactions and applications of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

The systematical approach to EMF-Med applications requires a dedicated community – a world-wide concerted R&D network – to sustain the required interdisciplinary knowledge: underlying biological mechanisms, knowledgable engineering, reliable setups – having medical applications and patient benefit as the final goal.

Conference topics:

The topics of interest include: cancer EMF interactions and applications, non-cancer EMF interactions and applications, EMF dosimetry – in silico tools & measurements, such as (but not limited to):

  • Thermal and non-thermal EMF-based cancer interactions and applications
  • EMF stimulation of excitable and non-excitable tissues – electroceuticals, bioelectronic medicine
  • EMF and neuromodulation – CNS and PNS electrostimulation
  • EMF-based neural repair and regeneration
  • Electromagnetic hyperthermia
  • Electromagnetic (RF, microwave) thermal ablation
  • Electroporation
  • Novel modalities for non-thermal EMF-based cancer treatment
  • EMF-based (microwave) medical imaging
  • EMF and immune response
  • Genes and cellular mechanisms involved in biological EMF interactions
  • EMF-based tissue regeneration
  • EMF applications in aesthetic medicine
  • EMF-mediated drug delivery
  • Nanoparticles in EMF-Med applications
  • Functionalized, integrated, multi-level anatomical models and tools
  • Dielectric properties of biological tissues
  • Neural tissue electromagnetic models
  • EMF microdosimetry
  • Experimental setups for EMF-Med related research
  • other medical procedures, applications, and technologies that are essentially and functionally based on EMFs.

Industry participation is welcome.
