Graduate course: Bioimpedance

This course presents actualized information about the state of the art of bioimpedance, offering a global overview of the latest developments in models, aplications and technologies associated to impedance spectrocospy of media and interfaces in biological and non-biological suspensions. In general, the course is designed from an interdisciplinary point of view, in particular, from the bioengineering point of view.
