Michal Cifra is head of Bioelectrodynamics research team (Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences). He obtained MSc. (2006) in Biomedical Engineering (University of Žilina, Slovakia) and PhD (2009) in Radioelectronics (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czechia). Apart from ~1 year biophotonics research experience from Germany (RWTH, Aachen / IIB, Neuss), he also gained experience with high-frequency bioelectronic interfaces (8 months, University of Chicago, USA). His research interests are in advanced high-frequency and microwave biochips, micro-/nanosensors, and nanoscale and molecular electrodynamic phenomena in biosystems.
