The M2BE research group mainly focuses its activity on the development of new methodologies and multi-scale numerical technologies in the fields of Mechanical and Biological Engineering. The M2BE group aims to promote progress and innovation in mechanobiological research, collaborating with leading international partners and developing new projects that position the region as an agent of excellence in this field of research.

In this context, the main goal of the M2BE Group is to promote progress and innovation in mechanobiological research in a fundamental and applied way in the R&D&I chain, collaborating with agents of reference at an international level and developing new projects that position the region as an agent of excellence in this field of research. In particular, we continue working on the combination of different methodologies (computer simulation models, in-vitro experimentation and clinical validation), which result in the following lines of research:

  • Computational design of prostheses and implants for personalized treatments.
  • Tissue Engineering and Mechanobiology of bone regeneration and remodelling.
  • Mechano-chemical-cellular biology.
  • Mechanobiology of tumour metastasis.
  • Biomechanical modelling of lung fibrosis.

 

We are a reference group recognized by the Government of Aragon, composed of 22 researchers and two technicians for research support.
