In tissue electroporation, electrodes are inserted around the targeted tissue and electrical pulses are applied to permeabilize the cell membrane to macromolecules such as gene constructs in genetic engineering or cancer treatment drugs [1, 2]. For a specific set of voltage parameters (e.g. pulse number, frequency, duration), the effect that the electric field has depends on the voltage gradients that develop across the individual cell [2].
