3D bioprinting and cancer in the media

IBEC researchers led by Elisabeth Engel are in the media for their new tool against breast cancer: 3D bioprinting of tumors using pig tissue. The study, led by group leader Elisabeth Engel, makes it possible to recreate human breast tumors using tissue of female pig breast. This opens the door to the manufacture of artificial … Read more

A new tool against breast cancer: 3D bioprinted tumors using pig tissue 

Researchers at IBEC manage to recreate the complex composition of human breast tumors in the laboratory using tissues from female pig breasts. This new model will allow, among other applications, the production of artificial tumors to study the development of cancer and metastasis, and immunosuppression processes, as well as being an excellent platform for testing drugs against the disease. 

nAngioDerm participated in world congress TERMIS

Professor Elisabeth Engel from IBEC, coordinator of nAngioDerm European project, presented the advances of the project at the 6th world congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS2021). Professor Engel talked about cells-materials interactions to promote vascularization in one of the most important scientific conferences in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Dermoglass in the media

Elisabeth Engel from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and Professor at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) appears in different media for the Dermoglass technology, the first project financed by the CaixaImpulse program to be licensed to a pharmaceutical company.

Dermoglass technology takes the leap into the pharmaceutical industry

Dermoglass becomes the first project funded by the CaixaImpulse program to be licensed to a pharmaceutical company, Laboratorios ERN. It is a new technology to tackle chronic ulcers developed by the research group “Biomaterials for Regenerative Therapies” led by Dr. Elisabeth Engel at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), who is also Professor at Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).
