Journal of Biomedical Photonics & Engineering

Online Journal of Biomedical Photonics & Engineering (J-BPE) covers fundamental research and applications focused on the interactions between light and biological materials and biomedical signal processing. The objectives of J-BPE are to establish an effective channel of communication between researchers, practitioners and clinicians, government agencies, universities, academic and research institutions and persons working in the area of biomedical photonics and engineering. Our focus encompasses the application of the basic principles of photonics and engineering to the development of medical devices and technologies, advancements in the early detection, diagnostics, and therapy of disease and with the ultimate aim of producing improvements in the quality of health care.


In our memory forever


June 3, 1978 — April 16, 2021

We regret to inform you that April 16, 2021, due to the complication of COVID-19, our colleague, friend and member of the editorial board, Dr. Ekaterina Borisova, passed away. This infection pulled Ekaterina out of our community at the most creative peak of her life, full of strength and ideas. We would like to express our condolences and words of support to her family, friends and colleagues.

Ekaterina studied Medical Physics and Laser Physics in Physics Faculty of Sofia University, Bulgaria. The Ph.D. degree on Physics was received in IE-BAS in 2005. From 2012 she became a Scientific Secretary of IE-BAS, from 2014 – Member of the Academic Council of BAS, and from March 2016 she was elected as a member of the Executive Council of BAS. She is a co-author of six book chapters, more than 120 articles and conference full texts reports, as well as of five national and European patents in the field of biophotonics. Her recent investigations cover the field of molecular spectroscopy of biological samples, optical biopsy of human tissues and monitoring and detection of their pathological changes, as well as the problems of photodynamic medicine and its applications. Dr. Borisova is a senior member of SPIE (2015), and regular member of European Physics Society, European Society of Photobiology, European Platform of Photodynamic Medicine, and Union of Physicists in Bulgaria. Her researches in the field of optical spectroscopy of human tissues for oncologic applications were honored with the BAS Prize for best young scientist in the field of Physics (2004), Prize “Pythagoras” of the Ministry of Education and Sciences for the Best Young Scientist in Bulgaria in 2012, as well as with an UNESCO/L’Oreal fellowship “For Women in Science” for Bulgaria in 2014. She was elected as an OSA Senior member in 2019.
