Actualment la recerca que desenvolupa el grup està orientada al voltant de tres eixos temàtics fonamentals:
1) Materials híbrids i conjugats formats per polímers conductors (PCs) amb aplicacions en Enginyeria de Teixits. Un dels nostres cavalls de batalla ha estat la utilització de materials híbrids orgànics PC/polímer aïllant i PC/proteïna, i de materials conjugats pèptid-PC com a matrius bioactives per la regeneració cel•lular.
2) Materials híbrids basats en polímers conductors amb aplicacions en Enginyeria de la Energia. Fonamentalment hem utilitzat PCs, sols o combinats, i materials híbrids PC/argiles per fabricar diferents dispositius capaços d’emmagatzemar energia elèctrica.
3) Mineralització de biomolècules i polímers conductors. Molt recentment hem iniciat una línia de recerca que té per objecte la síntesi de estructures minerals per biomineralitzar biomolècules, com el ADN, o per ser utilitzades com a nano- o micro-reactors per la síntesis de PCs.
