New Materials Group

Universidad de Vigo and Biomedical Research Institute (IBI)

Recognised by the Xunta de Galicia as an excellence group. Their main lines of research are into new biomaterials, bio-inspired materials and biocompatible nano-coatings. The materials they have obtained from shark teeth, wood and algaes for bone and dental implants are those of greatest importance.

Furthermore, they are researching more precise and less invasive living tissue diagnosis techniques for the prevention and treatment of diseases such as cancer in the oral cavity, osteoporosis and the demineralisation of dental enamel.
