El Grup de Biomaterials, Bioemecànica i Enginyeria de Teixits basa la seva recerca en el desenvolupament de biomaterials per a la regeneració i/o la reparació funcional de teixits i òrgans. Això comprèn el disseny de materials capaços de modular la resposta biològica del teixit receptor, donant lloc en alguns casos a la regeneració de teixits, i en altres a una perfecta integració del biomaterial, amb la recuperació funcional perduda.
El plantejament d'aquest objectiu és intrínsecament interdisciplinari, i exigeix d’una banda la caracterització dels materials a nivell físicoquímic i mecànic i, de l'altra, l'estudi de les seves interaccions amb les entitats biològiques a diferents nivells -proteïnes, cèl·lules i teixits-.
La recerca duta a terme pel grup BBT abasta tant aspectes fonamentals com d'altres més tecnològics, susceptibles de ser transferits a empreses del sector biomèdic.

The Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering Group carries out research into the development of biomaterials for the regeneration and/or functional repair of tissues and organs. There is a demand for the design of materials that are able to modulate the biological response of receiving tissues. In some cases this ability leads to the regeneration and neoformation of degraded tissue, and in others, the perfect integration of the biomaterial and the recovery of the lost function.
