The bio-electromagnetics research involves studies of the interactions of electromagnetic radiation with biological systems. Part of our work is used for non-invasive diagnostics techniques, targeted drug delivery through cell membranes and studies of electromagnetic dosimetry. The techniques involve both numerical simulation and physical measurements.
