Brief presentation of the institution

Tampere University of Technology (TUT) conducts scientific research in technology and architecture and provides higher education within these fields. TUT started operating in the form of a foundation in the beginning of 2010.

TUT’s operations are founded on a combination of strong research of the natural sciences and technology and research related to industry and business. Many research fields play a major role in addressing global challenges, such as climate change and demographic ageing. The most extensive and established of the international leading-edge fields of research at TUT are signal processing, nanophotonics, intelligent machines, and biocomputing.
 

Main Electroporation related topics

Research conducted at TUT in the field of electroporation is largely based on biocomputing, that is, computer simulations of biological systems. The main area of research in this context is molecular simulation of cellular membranes using a variety of simulation techniques (atomistic, coarse grained) applied to membranes with increasing complexity. Theoretical approaches complement the research based on computer simulations, and strong collaborations with experimental teams strengthen this work further. 

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

- Computer simulations based on quantum-mechanical techniques

- Computer simulation based on atomistic models

- Molecular simulations employing coarse-grained molecular models

- Computational systems biology

- Facilities used to carry out the simulations are based on resources and research infrastructures at local, national, and inter-national supercomputer centers

 

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

A great deal of the research focuses on biomolecular systems in general: 

- Many-component lipid membranes

- Membrane proteins in varying lipids environments

- Membrane receptors and their interactions with a variety of different ligands, and the mechanisms to modulate their function

- Lipoproteins and transfer proteins

- Drugs, antibodies, probes, and other small molecules
