DrSc. Vitalii Zablotskii is a senior researcher at the Institute of Physics Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, working in magnetism and biophysics. His main research activities focus on the study of magnetic field effects on living organisms, targeted magnetic drug and cell delivery as well as magnetic nanostructures and phase transitions.

 

Six gradients drive life on the Earth. Far from being uniform, the world consists of spatiotemporal patterns of substances and fields characterized by proper gradients. Cells development and motion are guided by the following gradients: a) gradient of the Earth's gravitational potential (gravity), b) temperature gradient, c) light intensity gradient, d) concentration gradient, e) gradient of the electric potential in cell membrane, and f) magnetic field gradient. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/bies.201800017
