A team of researchers of KFU Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology (IFM&B) - Ekaterina Naumenko, Senior Research Associate of the Bionanotechnology Research Laboratory, Maria Dzamukova, the 4-year student of IFM&B, and Ravil Fakhrullin, Assistant Professor of the Department of Microbiology, Research Advisor of the Bionanotechnology Research Laboratory - are the authors of one of the chapters of "Implantable Bioelectronics" by a key academic publishing house of John Wiley & Sons.
As reference: John Wiley & Sons, Inc. is a global publishing company that specializes in academic publishing and markets its products to professionals and consumers, students and instructors in higher education, and researchers and practitioners in scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly fields. The company produces books, journals, and encyclopedias, in print and electronically, as well as online products and services, training materials, and educational materials for undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education students.
The Kazan University team comprises experts in production of magnetically functionalized cells and their use in tissue engineering. A review of in-house experimental researches was included into the section ?Magnetically Functionalized Cells: Fabrication, Characterization, and Biomedical Applications?. It refers to the use of magnetic nanoparticles in cells modification, which are aimed at biomedical applications (directional delivery, MRI, and tissue engineering), and development of complexes with various living plants, that is one of the key fields of study at KFU Bionanotechnology Research Laboratory.
?The chapter on magnetic cells in a book on implanted bioelectronics devices is a significant stage in our work. It is about the methods of magnetic functionalization of microorganisms and mammals cells, and the development of functional devices and multicellular tissue prototypes with the help of magnetic cells. Having published several experimental articles in this subject, we analyzed and systemized the information on the use of magnetic cells in biomedicine, including potential implants,? Ravil Fakhrullin explains, ?We were certainly glad to be invited to prepare an article into a monograph published by such a prestigious house and edited by an outstanding scientist.?
