Aim & Scope

The Biomedical Workshop enters its 3rd realization in recognition of the scientific contributions of Prof. Jędrzej Śniadecki (1768 – 1838). The workshop centers on a range of issues related to the impairment of human locomotion as well as a variety of biological and health related problems at scales both large and small.

In particular, the topics addressed concern:

  • the spread of infection disease
  • physiological mechanisms of motion
  • orthoses and prostheses
  • biocompatibility
  • mechanical function of biomaterials
  • thermodynamics of physiologically active matter
  • rheology in low Reynolds number environments

In spirit of the accomplishments of Prof. Jędrzej Śniadecki, a prominent and far-seeing investigator of is times, the overall aim and scope of presented work will touch the fields of his original research and practice.

There is a substantial link between Jędrzej Śniadecki’s own qualitative findings on the role of vitamin D in bone disorders, reintroduced to the scientific community by W. Mozołowski [Nature – 1939, from Stefan Batory University of Vilnus], and the principle scope of the Biomedical Workshop—itself including research into all aspects of orthopedic disorders, from their bio-mechanochemical mechanisms and physiology to development and implementation of solutions at the societal level.
An even deeper connection between several presented topics and Śniadecki’s original work can be easily found when browsing the following review paper: „Vitamin D and Its Effects on Articular Cartilage and Osteoarthritis”( R. J. Garfinkel et al.), see:
