The mission of the International Society for Electroporation-Based Technologies and Treatments is to promote the advancement of scientific knowledge of the interactions of pulsed electric and electromagnetic fields and ionized gases with biological systems (cells, tissues, organisms, molecules and materials), with an emphasis on electroporation, and to facilitate the development of applications based on these phenomena in biology, medicine, biotechnology, and food and environmental technologies. The Society fosters collaboration and exchange of ideas and information among scientists, technology users, and other interested parties to accelerate the dissemination of new findings, and supports research, education, and training through the organization and sponsorship of congresses, conferences, workshops, and schools.
Aims/Objectives of the Society
- To organize international meetings to facilitate interactions among scientists, technology users, and other interested parties;
- To support workshops and schools to train and educate students, postdoctoral researchers, and young and established investigators in the principles associated with pulsed electric and electromagnetic field and ionized gas phenomena (electroporation, ablation, sterilization, textural modifications, etc.) in biology, medicine, biotechnology, and food and environmental technologies;
- To provide communication channels for establishing collaboration among scientists in biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, mathematics, informatics, and engineering to enhance understanding of pulsed electric and electromagnetic field and ionized gas interactions with biological systems;
- To promote the development of pulsed electric and electromagnetic field- and ionized gas-based applications and to encourage and facilitate the exploration of new applications of pulsed electric and electromagnetic fields and ionized gases in biology, medicine, biotechnology, and food and environmental technologies;
- To promote the continuation of existing and the formation of new links between industrial partners and academia for the development of new applications.
