Collaborative E-Learning
application for
electroporation-based
biomedical applications
Selma Corovic
Background and motivation
- Electroporation of cells and tissues – human, animal or plant
cells for different biomedical and biotechnological applications
clinical electrochemotherapy - cancer treatment
- Electroporation based biomedical applications require
multidisciplinary expertise: oncologists, physicists, engineers…

Applications of Electroporation
Electroporation is used in:
biomedical
- clinical electrochemotherapy, non-viral gene electrotransfer for gene therapy
and DNA vaccination, transdermal drug delivery…
- liquid food sterilization, water treatment, electrofusion of cells…
UTI = −1.5 r E cos (φ)
(a) The electroporation of cell membrane first occurs within
the cell area facing the electrodes
(b) Different electroporation regimes:
reversible Erev < E < Eirrev and irreversible E >Eirrev
Electrochemotherapy =
= chemotherapy + electroporation

Protocols and local electric field distribution in tumors
Protocols used in clinical electrochemotherapy today include:
8 pulses of 100 µs duration, f=1 Hz or f=5 KHz, U/d =1300 V/cm
