"Plasmas in Medicine"

Organizers: G. Fridman and N. Puač

Plasma Medicine is a rapidly growing field created at the intersection of plasma science and technology with medicine and biology. Workshop Plasmas in Medicine will be organized on the 16th of July as a part of 20th ESCAMPIG conference. It should cover the topics such as applications of plasma in medicine, design and diagnostics of plasma systems used in medical treatments, fundamentals of interactions between plasma and living tissue, etc. The goal of this workshop is to bring together plasma physicists and to open the scientific discussion and cooperation in the highly innovative field of biological and medical plasma applications.
