Miscellaneous Information:

Professor Koruga is the founder of theNanoLab at the University of Belgrade and Department of Biomedical Engineering. He has been a lecturer on BioSystems, Fractal Mechanics, Nanotechnology, Early Cancer Detection and a leader of research projects in Materials Science and Technology, Opto-magnetic Imaging Spectroscopy, Nanophotonics, Biomedical Engineering and Nanomedicine.

Professor Koruga was a visiting professor at many universities in the USA (University of Arizona, Wayne State University, University of Washington); Japan (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Kobe University, Chuo University), China; (Zhejiang University) and Korea; (SAMSUNG Research Institute, University of Seoul). Since 2012 he has participated in the EU Tempus project in Biomedical Engineering, collaborating with the University of Birmingham (UK), Pierre and Marie Curie University, (France), Tampere University of Technology (Finland), University of Maribor (Slovenia).

During his stay in the USA (1990-1997), he worked for NSF, NASA, Army and DARPA projects in MER Inc. and at the University of Arizona. He participated in the first U.S. Army Natick Research Conference on Nanotechnology in 1993. He is a co-inventor of a biomedical device for measuring the bioimpendence property of human skin and enabling an early detection of skin cancer and melanoma.

Professor Koruga is currently the head of the joint Department of Biomedical Engineering and Nanomedicine at the European Centre for Peace and Development, which was established by the University of Peace, United Nations and the University of Belgrade. Professor Koruga leads courses on Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology, QI Engineering (link between methods and techniques of traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture and Western medicine).

As an inventor in nanotechnology he was awarded the Nikola Tesla Golden Medal. He has published around 150 scientific papers, 45 in journals with IF (Impact Factor), and his papers have been cited 424 times in international journals and books. He has three US Patents and five patent applications. He was a session Chairman on many international conferences and the Chairman on five of them.

Professor Koruga is the inventor of technologies behind several companies (mySkin, TeleSkin, Tumour Trace and Zepter International). He is a pioneer in the field of nanotechnology and nanomedicine from which companies dealing with biomedical technologies have arisen.
