National center of biomedical photonics was established in the fames of a project funded by the National Science Fund of Bulgaria, Minestry of Education and Science, competition "Centers of excellence" 2008 After completion of the project ( Summary report of project -02-112/2008 "National center of bomedical photonics" - in Bulgarian) the scientific structer is properly functioning.

General aims:

Strengthen and growth of the Institute of Electronics in the field of biomedical photonics as a leading research center in Bulgaria and in the region. Implementation of the developed in the IE conception about creation of new high-technological market niche in this area, based on the contemporary economic theory about "Competitive advantage of nations". Achievement of high quality results in the research, development and introduction activities in the filed of biomedical physics and technology, as well as in the activities, related to the application of optoelectronic equipment and methods into clinical practice, formation and development of laser and optoelectronic equipment consumption and connected health services and training of highly specialized cadres.

Used methods:

Application and development of the classical methods of optical spectroscopy and realization of interdisciplinary transfer of methodologies for investigations and influence on the biological tissues. Development and growth of new research, diagnostic and therapeutic methods as optical biopsy, laser-assisted tissues reshaping, new multifactor control schemes for photodynamic therapy.

Expected results:

  • Development of research and training national network of excellence, through synergy of physical, photobiological and medical resources;
  • Improvement of the education (Master and PhD student) programmes in medical physics, optoelectronics and photomedicine.
  • Development of interface products of the biomedical optoelectronics and ensuring of their high technological level through active cooperation with industrial partners.
  • Development of national infrastructure for Bulgaria' participation in large-scale international research programmes underpinned by Biomedical Photonics.
