Algirdas Venalis

Head of department, chief researcher

Scientific researches and experimental development are implemented in this department. The aim of this activity is examine, develop and transfer new technology in health care practice: methods of diagnostics and treatment, medical devices, advanced therapy technologies, digital solutions, methodology of preventive health care and etc.

 The main areas of  scientific research and experimental development: 

-Rheumatology

-Cardiology 

-Phototherapy

-Medical imaging technology

-Digital medicine

 

Department starts scientific research in resort sciencearea. The greatest achievements of the department are in these fields:

 

Rheumatology

  • Development of the unified blood vessel examination methodology with connective tissue diseases. 
  • Joint tissue research. Research, used to evaluate experimental effective  photosensitizer  or nanoparticle impact for inflammatory joint tissue. Research used to evaluate light therapeutic effect for joint tissues. Experimental effects of effective photosensitizers or nanoparticles on inflammatory joints that will allow the selection of the most selective photosensitizers or synthesized nanoparticles that, by absorbing lightand expelled heat eill destroy inflammatory synovia.
  • The search for  diagnostic terms of aggressive synovial fibroblasts in vitro and connection with arthritis examination.
  • Systemic sclerosis research in animals biomodels. Research Phototherapy opportunities for systemic sclerosis skin complications-scleroderma- treatment.
  • Biomedical research of Sjogren’s syndrome, analyzing the frequency estimation  of new cases of primary and secondary Sjogren’s syndrome and evaluation of risks to get lymphoproliferative disorder.  Biomedical research of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis arthritis, ankylosis arthritis.

 

 Cardiology

  • Development of the methods and devices for monitoring of heart activity.
  • Development of telemedicine technologies for cardiology.
  • Research of smart devices application in cardiology.
  • Research on of myocardial infarction treatment using upper threshold electrostimulation.

 

Phototherapy

  • Studies of  light impact for connective tissue.
  • Studies of photosensitizers 
  • Development of phototherapy technologies.

 

Digital medicine and bioinformatics

  • Studies of medical imaging technology 
  • Development of smart devices for motoring of human physiological functions. 
  • Develompent  of telemedicine
