Study of rheological and electrical behaviour of blood and its formed elements under steady and non-steady flow and the relationship with the structuring and local mechanical characteristics of the erythrocytes aimed to improve the methods and enhance the diagnostic tools in patients with diabetes, cerebrovascular diseases, atherosclerosis etc; Mathematical modelling based on experimental data aimed to:
- discover the dynamic nature and quantitative predictions of singnalling pathways response and disturbances thereof.
- determine the concentration and modifications of the proteins involved in intra-cellular singaling cascades regulating growth, division, differentiation and apoptosis in diseases as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
- discover potential targets for medication.

Study of visco-elastic behaviour of human abdominal fascia and its synthetic substitutes and finding a criterion defining the similarity of mechanical properties based on the relaxation behaviour of the materials aimed to improve the properties of hernial sails and treatment of orthopedic injuries and hernias. Biotechnological research of the dynamics of the cultivation of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans in different environments in view of their use in medicine and biotechnology. Study biofilm processes under the influence of environment and convective and diffusion transport of inert gases.

 

Task 1. Theoretical and experimental studies of mechanical and electrical properties of blood and blood formed elements

Task 2. Systems biology (molecular biodynamics)

Task 3. Biomechanics of tissues, biomaterials and processes

 

Projects supported: a joint research project on "Theoretical and experimental studies of mechanical and electrical properties of blood and blood formed elements" between the BAS and the ASCR

DAAD-National Fund for Scientific Investigation project DOO02/05.03.2009 " Identification, annotation and modelling the role of microRNAs in human cancer network "
