The main research lines and projects carried out by the group, focused on clinical and industrial issues, are summarized below:







Schematics (A) and microscopic image (B) of a microfluidic device with 3 integrated biosensors. From Parra-Cabrera et al., 2012.





Cell Culture platform containing microenvironments based on highly tunable gradients of covalently bound proteins (fibronectin) on topographically modified poly(methyl methacrylate). (Right) High-magnification confocal image of 3T3 cells at a “high” fibronectin density region on a microstructured surface ( 100 ng cm–2). (Inset) Detail of formation of focal contacts at the cell periphery. White arrows point to the interaction of cell protrusions with the topography. From Comelles, J., et al., 2012.
