Centro de Investigación en Bioingeniería

Centro de Investigación en Bioingeniería

Bioengineering research at UTEC focuses on three key areas:

-Tissue Engineering: Development of nanoparticles chemically linked to peptides, produced by stem cells to improve the regeneration of damaged tissues.

-Microfabrication of Microfluidic Devices:Projects related to in situ detection of infectious diseases such as malaria, methods for rapid detection of drug-resistant bacteria and devices to detect circulating tumor cells.

-Synthetic Biology:Development of a robotic fish that detects signals of microorganisms in real-time, through a bacteria capable of detecting the presence of arsenic in water.

Centro de Impacto y Responsabilidad Social

Centro de Impacto y Responsabilidad Social

Science, technology, and engineering must consider the social and cultural context in which they are developed. The problems they address are a part of social issues, the methods they use are carried out in a cultural context and the results they yield have a human and social impact. CIRSO aims to articulate the social component to assess the interaction between research projects and the community. Thes main objective is to disseminate and encourage the use of scientific knowledge to society and its individuals.
