Poster (A3 PDF)


This Two-Day Mini-Cycle of Seminar Lectures, named BIOFIZMEDENG16, is going to  address in part an ambitious goal to put together efforts of biophysicists and bio- and telemedical engineers in order to present a recent knowledge on hot biomedical theory and practice, based on (pre)clinical attempts, patented ongoing experimental trials, as well as when offering, in parallel, suitable theory, well supported by extensive computer simulations.

Day I will consist of one long invited lecture by an experienced researcher (Dr. W. Auge II), complemented by a Seminar, in which four less experienced research fellows will present their research topics (Dr. P. Weber and Ph.D. fellows: P. Żuk, P. Bełdowski and M. Wirwicki).

Day II will be based on two plenary and invited lectures, presented by Prof. H. Figiel, and again Dr. W. Auge.

Note that both days of BIOFIZMEDENG16 are organized at different locations.

Note as well that the day in-between, that means April 20th, is planned to have some informal and departmental short meetings with the visitor(s). It will also be partly devoted to fostering further cooperation with them all.


The Shedule

Day I (19.04.2016; location - UTP, Fordon, al. Kaliskiego - RCI C8)

Dr. S. Jung, chair & Profs. A. Gadomski/T. Topoliński – Brief Intro & Opening

9:00 – 11:00 Dr. Wayne Auge II (Dept. of Res. & Dev., NuOrtho Surgical, Inc., Fall River, MA, USA; invited visitor)
“Articular Cartilage Treatment”
Short abstract: This presentation will consist of an overview of the current surgical treatment options for articular cartilage lesions, the unique features of articular cartilage and the treatment environment, and the physiochemical scalpel designed to create a healthy lesion site.

11:45 – 14:00 [Ph.D. Students & Fellows’ Seminar] – Dr. J. Siódmiak, chair:

Mr. Paweł Żuk (Dept. of Physics, University of Warsaw)
“On the aggregation of suspensions in the shear flow”
Short abstract: We investigate the process of aggregation of the suspension of weakly attractive spherical and rod-like particles under the shear flow. Both the morphology of the aggregates and the dynamics of the aggregation process are considered for moderate volume fractions as a function of the shear rate. We show that various aspects of aggregation process exhibit universal behavior regardless of the monomer particle shape.

12:15-12:40 Dr. Piotr Weber (CM UMK Bydgoszcz)
“Fractional calculus as a tool for modeling of complex phenomena”
Short abstract: Complex system theory plays an important role in life science. It covers many processes observed in different organization levels of the organism and beyond: sociological interactions and ecosystem. Temporal evolution of, and within, complex systems differ from the simplest cases. One example of this is diffusion proces. In various complex systems ussually doesn't fulfill the Fick's second law. Especially the mean square displacement from time isn't linear. It means that Markovian nature of the underlying stochastic proces can't be assume.
Fractional kinetic equations are recognized as a tools to describe the evolution of complex systems. The use of non-local fractional derivatives at a time in the evolution equations models the effects of system's memory. Spatial non-local fractional derivative describes longe range interactions in that complex system. The presentation will show examples of phenomena that are governed by fractional differential equations, mainly anomalous diffusion.

12:45-13:10 Mr. Piotr Bełdowski (UTP Bydgoszcz)
“Paradigms of micelles-involving lubrication: brushes and hydrated (bio)surfaces”
Short abstract: not provided [ domestic participant]

Mr. Mateusz Wirwicki (UTP Bydgoszcz)
“Zirconium dioxide: the future material of dental application”
Short abstract: not provided [domestic participant]

13:45-14:00 Dr. Jacek Siódmiak & Dr. Wayne Auge II

Concluding Summary & Critical Discussion of the Contents of Four Short Invited Contributions


Day II (21.04.2016; location – CM UMK, Jagiellońska - sala Sentu)

Prof. S. Kruszewski, chair & Prof. A. Gadomski – Final Word/Closing:

12:00-12:55 Prof. Henryk Figiel (AGH Kraków; plenary talk)
“Directions of MRI Development”
Short abstract: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) nowadays is one of the basic techniques in medical diagnosis. After a short historical introduction the basic physical principles of this technique related with NMR will be reminded. The most interesting physical aspects influencing the development of imaging, and also the newest possibilities of MRI will be discussed. The most interesting and newest technical solutions in MRI and also tendencies and directions of further development and application of this technique will be presented.

13:00-13:55 Dr. Wayne Auge II (Dept. of Res. & Dev., NuOrtho Surgical, Inc., Fall River, MA, USA; invited visitor)
“The Gold Standard of Articular Cartilage Treatment – Restoring Viscoelastic Properties”
Short abstract: This presentation addresses the biology, chemistry, and physics deployed to treat damaged cartilage lesions to create a healthy wound bed that facilitate reestablishment of cartilage's viscoelastic properties.

13:55-14:40 Prof. Peter Talkner (special guest from University of Augsburg)
"Transport and separation of chiral particles in a flowing fluid"
Short abstract:An object is called chiral if it does not match with its mirror image. We consider simplest chiral objects in flowing fluids both in two and three dimensions and identify various mechanisms that cause different transport properties of these objects and their mirror reversed partners. In this way a purely physical chiral separation can be achieved.

Program and Organizing Committee, in Alphabetical Order:

Dr. Michał Cyrankiewicz, CM UMK [Med. Phys. Dept.]  Bydgoszcz and PPS.
Prof. Adam Gadomski, UTP [Phys. Dept.]  Bydgoszcz and PPS.
Dr. Stanisław Jung, UTP [Biomed. Engng Dept.] Bydgoszcz.
Prof. Stefan Kruszewski, CM UMK [Med. Phys. Dept.]  Bydgoszcz and PPS.
Dr. Jacek Siódmiak, UTP [Phys. Dept.]  Bydgoszcz and PPS.
Prof. Tomasz Topoliński, UTP [Biomed. Engng Dept.] Bydgoszcz.

The Committee takes all responsibility for the Program of BIOFIZMEDENG16, which is a two-day seminar organized by the Dept. of Biomedical Engng of WIM UTP Bydgoszcz and Dept. of Physics (Group of Modeling of Physicochemical Processes) of IMiF UTP Bydgoszcz, both of them under a honorary patronage of the Polish Physical Society/PPS (Warsaw Headquaters & Bydgoszcz Chapter). The Committee’s members will be in charge to chair the corresponding sessions and/or to provide brief intro and final word upon starting and finishing  BIOFIZMEDENG16.
Attention: The Committee has also decided to set the domestic participants free of providing in advance the short abstracts to their talks – however, all of them ought, while presenting,  to obligatory  consist of a resume or some concluding summary, instead.  All lectures and talks are in English. Some translational possibilities from English to Polish can only be fulfilled in part while really necessary, and quite on the spot.
