The Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is a research institute that covers most bioengineering fields, from the most basic research to medical applications. Its aim is to be an international leader in this area.

IBEC was created to further the development of interdisciplinary research of excellence in biomedical engineering and to become a technological partner for hospitals, biomedical research centres and universities in the surroundingarea.

IBEC’s activities are divided into six research programmes:

  • Cellular biotechnology 
    Microbial biotechnology, health biotechnology and processes of production of biomolecules, cell differentiation and cell culture technologies.
  • Biomechanics and cellular biophysics
    Mechanical properties at the cellular and molecular level, cellular biophysics.
  • Nanobiotechnology
    Nanostructures and surface functionalization, hybrid nanostructures, microfluids, biosensors, biochips, lab-on-a-chip, microarrays and biomimetic system.
  • Biomaterials, implants and tissue engineering 
    Development of materials and structures for biocompatible replacement, tissue formation, technologies for repairing or replacing tissues and organs.
  • Medical signals and instrumentation 
    Biomedical signal processing, control and monitoring systems for both treatment and prevention.
  • Robotic and biomedical imaging 
    Support systems for minimally invasive surgery and surgical assistance. Obtaining and processing biomedical images at the level of organs, tissues and cells or biomolecules.
