Biomedical engineering is a growing field of science, technology and clinical applications, bringing together the intra- and interdisciplinary knowledge and experiences. This growth is demonstrated by numerous new applications for benefit of human being.
In 1995, two Polish scientists, namely Prof. Halina Podbielska and Prof. Wiesław Stręk launched a new Polish journal Acta Bio-Optica et Informatica Medica, devoted to the applications of lasers and informatics in medicine. Very soon they have realized that these two fields belong to the large family of biomedical engineering technologies. So, nowadays this journal is published under the auspices of the Polish Society of Biomedical Engineering and became a communication forum and place for exchange of many ideas between medical doctors, scientists and engineers.
Family of biomedical engineering specialists is from nature not only multidisciplinary, but also multinational. The specialists from many countries have a strong cooperation in various fields of contemporary biomedical engineering. We are very happy to have on our Scientific Board internationally recognized specialists.
Prof. Gert von Bally from the Münster University, Germany is a specialist in Biophotonics. Prof. Dr Olga Golubnitschaja is a Head of "Molecular Diagnostics", Radiological Clinic, Friedrich-Wilhelms-University of Bonn, Bonn, and also she serves as a Secretary General of EPMA - European Association of Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Medicine. As our journal is devoted to the technological development in medicine, inclusive biomedical engineering, diagnostics, rehabilitation, it is fully in line with the EPMA mission, therefore EPMA has a honorary patronage of our journal. Prof. Abraham Katzir from the Faculty of Exact Sciences at Tel-Aviv University is a friend and a big enthusiast of Biomedical Optics, including medical laser applications. Prof. Joseph Kost from the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is The Abraham and Bessie Zacks Professor of Biomedical Engineering and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at the Ben-Gurion University of The Negev. Prof. dr Sidney B. Lang is also from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev, from the Department of Chemical Engineering. His research interests are in pyroelectricity and piezoelectricity and techniques for measuring these properties in various materials, including biological ones. Prof. Gheorghe A. Stanciu from the Center for Microscopy - Microanalysis and Information Processing, University Politehnica of Bucharest, is working in the field of super resolutions microscopy, especially for examination of biological materials. Dr Syed A. M. Tofail is working in the Materials and Surface Science Institute at the University of Limerick in Ireland. His fields of interest include materials science, biomaterials and nano- and nanobiotehcnologies.
As from 2013, the journal Acta Bio-Optica et Informatica Inżynieria Biomedyczna will be published on-line, only. Papers related to the Journal scope, written in Polish or English, are welcomed.
