Cells clearly form ECM bridges, establishing interparticular connections.

Tissue engineering of bone, skin, vascular and neural tissue / Development of biomaterials for tissue regeneration / Research at the biointerface between surface materials and biological entities / Surface functionalisation / Stem cells research

Research in the Biomaterials for Regenerative Therapies group is devoted to the development and knowledge transfer to industry of innovative biomaterials and scaffolds for tissue regeneration. We design, fabricate and characterise bioactive and biodegradable materials and investigate their interactions with biological entities, both in terms of their fundamental aspects and with specific applications for tissue engineering purposes in mind. The aim is the repair and functional restoration of tissues or organs by means of 3D scaffolds, cells and signals.

Two main research areas are being developed in the group:

1) Production of polymeric biomaterials using different fabrication techniques. The use of a jet break-up polymer precipitation technique to produce micro particles for cell delivery has allowed using them as a part of a bioink for Rapid manufacturing processes (Levato R, et al. Bioprocessing 2014) enhancing cell viability and proliferation for bone engineering applications. For central nervous tissue regeneration, the application of electrospun nanofibers in aligned distribution has demonstrated to promote revascularization of the scaffold implanted in the mice cortex and proliferation of neuroprecursor cells (Álvarez A, et al. Biomaterials 2014).


Immunofluorescence of 21-days scaffolds revealed the presence of representative ECM proteins such collagen and laminin.

2) The other strategic area is the production of structured bioactive nanocomposites that can enhance vascularization and bone regeneration, either by electrospinning, Rapid Prototyping or microparticles production. Recent advances have shown the capability of electrospun nanocomposites to induce angiogenesis in bone regeneration in vivo (Castaño O, ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2014). Thus, rapid prototyping composite scaffolds for bone regeneration have been functionalized with Fibronectin. The presence of the nanoparticles of glass enhanced the immobilization of the protein (Won JE, et al. Biotechnol Lett. 2014).


Nanofiber scaffolds implanted in mice cortex for 12 months. Random fibers (left) do not allow the entrance of the vessels inside the scaffold, while aligned fibers (right) show a complete re-vascularization of the scaffold.

In 2014, the group has been granted with a RECERCAIXA project related to Tendon regeneration that has allowed us to develop a prototype for tendon regeneration that will be validated in vivo in 2015.

We also succeeded in getting funds from Crowdfunding (Goteo platform) initiative to validate a new dressing for treating vascular ulcers, Dermoglass. We are now working on developing a prototype to validate it in a preclinical study to demonstrate the efficacy of the dressing.

Engineering biomaterials at the nanoscale

IBEC researchers have come up with a groundbreaking new approach to create a tough, biodegradable, bioactive and entirely new material, heralding a major milestone in the production of artificial matrices for tissue engineering. In a letter published today in the Royal Society journal Interface, the Biomaterials for Regenerative Therapies group describes a new, easy and cheap method for producing glass-coated fibrous scaffolds which not only faithfully mimic the extracellular matrix of bone, but also aim to direct stem cell fate through physical and chemical interactions.

A step towards repairing the central nervous system

Researchers from IBEC and the University of Barcelona have revealed a promising new strategy for regenerating the central nervous system, in a paper published in the journal Biomaterials.

Smart biomaterial promotes angiogenesis

IBEC researchers have stuck tissue engineering gold with the creation of a new ‘smart’ biomaterial that triggers angiogenesis by providing the biochemical and mechanical cues needed for the process to begin.

Developing a new solution to treat atherosclerosis

We’ve all eaten rich meals or fatty foods and joked that we can feel our ‘arteries hardening’. However, the reality of atherosclerosis – when fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up in the artery walls and form solid structures called plaques – is no joking matter. The consequences of this disorder can include stroke and coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death in many developed countries.

Green light for regeneration projects

The two IBEC-led CIBER-BBN tissue regeneration projects that were earmarked for funding by the EU’s ERA-NET EuroNanoMed initiative last year (see have both received the national support they need to get started.
