Technological development in the area of novel electromagnetic systems operating in higher frequency bands opens up questions related to the influence of electromagnetic fields on biological tissues. Existing studies show that waves in the emerging frequency bands can cause not only the heating of the tissue but can also initiate changes in the cell structure. The project is aimed to provide the necessary tools for research teams which are active in the area of biomedical research. The project deals with three topics:

1) research into implantable antennas and antennas operating in the vicinity of biological tissue,

2) research into microwave imaging based on multi-objective optimization techniques, and

3) research into artificial neural networks for the suppression of noise in the measurement.
