This issue of J. Biomedical Photonics & Engineering is dedicated to the scientific contribution of the Head of Laboratory of Biophotonics of Institute of Electronics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IE-BAS) Dr. Ekaterina G. Borisova to the development of biophotonics in the world. COVID-19 infection has ripped Ekaterina out of our community at the most creative age. We invite all her friends and associates to submit their works to this special issue in a tribute to her and in support of the scientific ideas and directions that she was developing during her short but bright life.
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.
