Place: Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC). Nanomol-BIO Group

NANOMOL-BIO is a research group dedicated to the synthesis, preparation and physicochemical characterization, up to pre-clinical regulatory scale, of molecular and polymeric nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Some examples are polymeric materials and composites, powdered substances of controlled size and morphology, materials in suspension, or vesicular systems for the controlled release of drugs. The processing of these materials is carried out, among others, by means of high-pressure compressed fluid techniques.

The NANOMOL-BIO group is a member of the Biomedical Research Network (CIBER) in the area of Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BNN); and is awarded with the TECNIO seal granted to Catalan research groups with high innovative capacity and technology transfer.
