The Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering Research Group (BBT), with Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra as Research Director, is part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (CEM) of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). 

The BBT’s main scientific goal is the development of biomaterials for tissue and organs regeneration/functional repair, from a basic scientific approach to an applied point of view, by transferring the generated knowledge to bio companies and hospitals.
