Name of the research center: Center for Modeling Biological Systems and Data Analysis/ acronym CMSBAD

Director of the research center: Professor, PhD Lungenu Diana

Date of establishment/ acknowledgement: 05.03.2021

Research areas/ research opportunities:

Comprising medical doctors, informatics experts, and physicists, CMBSDA is an interdisciplinary research center interested in the mathematical modeling of biological phenomena and statistical analysis of medical data. CMBSDA conducts scientific projects in the field of tissue engineering, human body composition analysis by physical methods, sonic representation of medical data, and inter-disciplinary analysis of bio-medical data.

Various bioprinting techniques are applied to build multicellular structures (such as tissue constructs that mimic the tumor microenvironment, or vascular structures) and computational models are developed to study cellular self-organization in tissue constructs assembled in the laboratory. 

Body composition studies rely on (i) air displacement plethysmography ‒ to assess global adiposity, (ii) ultrasound ‒ to measure thicknesses of fat and muscle layers, (iii) bioelectrical impedance analysis ‒ to evaluate the water content of the body as well as visceral adiposity, (iv) three-dimensional (3D) body scanning ‒ to conduct digital anthropometry and posture analysis.

CMBSDA is open to collaborations in all domains of biomedical science in which its human and material resources might contribute to the understanding of biological phenomena and/or to the improvement of health care.
