PIERS2019 Rome Focus/Special Sessions  
SC1: Short and Ultrashort Pulsed Electric Fields for Biomedical and Industrial Applications
Organized by Dr. Olga Zeni (CNR --- National Research Council of Italy) and Dr. Stefania Romeo (CNR --- National Research Council of Italy, IREA)
Session's Information:
Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) is an innovative, non-thermal, breakthrough technology relying on electroporation (EP) of cell membranes (human, animal, plant and microbial), that is becoming increasingly popular for biomedical and industrial applications. As an example, in electroporation-based cancer treatments, PEF technology enables enhanced and selective drug permeation in cancer cells (electrochemotherapy), while in food process it represents a highly efficient alternative to conventional treatments to increase the mass transfer of intracellular material. The use of PEF technology is still limited by the lack of complete knowledge on basic mechanisms of EP and resealing of biological membranes, and on the role played by the main electric parameters (pulse duration, repetition rate, electric field amplitude). This special session aims to convey the latest research findings and advances in basic research, translational research, and clinics and on-field applications. Potential topics include but are not limited to: modeling of EP phenomenon; generation and delivery of electric pulses; effects of PEF on biological targets; electrochemotherapy; medical, biotechnology, food science, and environmental applications of PEF.
