Translate the academic excellence into innovations available to industry.
Develop high quality scienfic research in the field of Biomedical Engineering and Biomimetics.
Make available to the clinical partners useful engineering tools and new developments to improve the patients' life quality.
We believe that! That's why our researchs provides the usage of engineering knowledge to biotechnologies in order to develop new resources that make the world better to live. The main research areas are biomechanics and assistive technology, cardiovascular engineering, photobiomodulation and photodynamic therapy, biomimetics and medical devices (gynecology, cardiovascular surgery, dermatology and dentistry).
Understanding the forces acting on the joints of the human body is essential for the improvement of rehabilitation procedures and surgery.
The area of Assistive Technology comprises the development, transfer and dissemination of technologies to help provide or enhance functional abilities of people with disabilities or reduced mobility.
Biomimetics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines.
Photodynamic therapy, or PDT, is a therapy where a photosensitive compound (dye) is administered to the patient and absorbed by bacteria, fungi and other microorganism abusers.
