El Grup de Biomaterials, Bioemecànica i Eng. de Teixits basa la seva recerca en el desenvolupament de biomaterials per a la regeneració i/o la reparació funcional de teixits i òrgans. Es requereix el disseny de materials capaços de modular la resposta biològica del teixit receptor, donant lloc en alguns cassos a la regeneració i la neoformació dels teixits degradats, i en altres a una perfecta integració del biomaterial i la recuperació funcional perduda.

The objectives of the group are focused on the research and development of materials for implantation into the human body, known as biomaterials. The functionality of these biomaterials is studied in the research field of biomechanics. New trends for substituting and regenerating human tissues lie within the field of tissue engineering. The BIBITE group works with all kinds of biocompatible materials for tissue substitution (hard, soft, cardiovascular, etc.). The use of some of these materials as scaffolds, which are colonised by living cells, is the basis of tissue engineering. The behaviour of implants based on these hybrids in the regeneration of the living tissues and the implantation of prostheses made from different biomaterials are evaluated by means of testing and computer modelling within the field of biomechanics.
