Optical assessment of blood microrheology in norm, disease and at interaction with nanoparticles

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 to Wednesday, April 15, 2015


Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program


Prof. Alexander Priezzhev, Professor and Head of Biomedical Photonics Laboratory, Department of Physics and International Laser Center, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia; Adjunct professor of the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems at Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA

Date & time

April 14, 2015, 10-15
April 15, 2015, 10-15

Room: TS267 (Tietotalo 1, OEM Lab)



This course will provide a description of various phenomena associated with light interaction with whole blood and blood components (single blood cells, cell suspensions, blood plasma proteins). Fundamentals of light diffraction and scattering techniques designed to study blood microrheologic properties will be discussed. Special emphasis will be made on the relation of microrheologic properties and microcirculation. Possibilities of assessing the alterations of these properties due to diseases or interaction of blood components with nanoparticles administered into blood for diagnostics or therapeutic purposes will be outlined.
