Description of activities

The Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Group of the Department of Bioengineering in UC3M consists of about 20 research fellows including professors, post-docs and PhD students, whose activities cover the fields of cell/tissue and molecular engineering.

Our research interests are focused on advancing human health through understanding complex living systems. Our mission is to create a fusion of engineering, medicine, biology and genetics  that promotes scientific discovery and the development of new biomedical therapies through research and education.

Our team is part of the CIBER (Centro de Investigaciones Biomedicas en Red) on Rare Diseases (Unit 714) and underwent an international peer-review process in 2010 being awarded with the maximum score and was ranked as one of the most excellent Units within CIBERER.
