 ANOTATION 

The consortium "National Center of Biomedical Photonics" (NCBP) is research infrastructure distributed between academic institutes, university hospitals and high-tech businesses, part of the European Science Network. The aim of the project is to upgrade and develop a state-of-the-art world-class research infrastructure to place Bulgaria in the field of biomedical photonics research and innovation. The activities foreseen in this project are: equipment upgrades, mobility trainings at leading European research centers, training researchers and representatives from the medical and industrial sectors, expanding human resources and attracting new scientific and applied groups, organization of seminars and conferences, providing quality products and training to end users through development of methods and applications of biomedical photonics, incl. medical institutions, manufacturers of medical optical and laser equipment, as well as activities for the dissemination of the obtained knowledge.

NCBP goals concerning the research plans of individual consortium partners include:

  • Investigation and determination of spectral characteristics of biological tissues, in health and pathology, incl. in oncogenesis (fluorescence steady state and time spectroscopy, absorption-transmission, diffuse-reflective, Raman, infrared spectroscopy, etc.). Development of discriminatory algorithms and tools for initial diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring of socially significant diseases
  • Development of systems for photodynamic therapy and theranostics, optical modification and modulation of biochemical, functional and morphological properties of biological tissues with therapeutic effect
  • Development of a mobile platform for the generation, validation and analysis of biological models in the fields of bio-medicine and biophysics, photodynamic medicine, optogenetics
  • Characteristics of optically active materials and biomimetic systems
  • Functionalization of biodegradation polyelectrolyte multilayer coatings for medical implants and optimization of their biocompatibility for nanomedicine application
  • Establishment of drug delivery systems based on natural biocompatible and biodegradable polyelectrolytes for encapsulation and release control.
