The Centre for Biomedical Technology is the result of the technological and scientific initiative BioTech of the Technical University of Madrid. The CTB boosts the use of technology in the field of life sciences, particularly health. The researchers of the centre develop technical solutions for the care, prevention and promotion of health and investigate new tools for diagnosis and therapy, as well as basic biomedical technology to support these new tools.

The CTB is at the forefront of biomedical research in various fields of great current prevalence, which have been addressed through the participation of researchers from many different disciplines and institutions with which the UPM has signed the pertinent agreements.

Almost 200 researchers work in different laboratories: Nanomedicine; Advanced biomedical imaging technologies; Blue Brain project; Cognitive neuroscience; Magnetoencephalography; Computational system biology; Biochemistry and molecular biology; Animal cell models; Clinical and experimental neurology; Bioelectromagnetics; Bio-TIC; Biomaterials and tissue engineering; E-Health; Biomedical informatics; Speech analysis; Diabetes technology; Rehabilitation technology.


The annual reports of the research centre at Montegancedo Campus annually gather: R&D projects, publications, research data,  mobility and result exploitations.

The essential role of connexins in cell regeneration: A multidisciplinary team with UPM researchers makes progress in the functional knowledge of these proteins and their involvement in several diseases.

Beer brewing waste could help bone regeneration: The waste obtained from the beer brewing process contains the main chemical components found in bones (phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and silica), that after undergoing modification processes, this waste can be used as support or scaffold to promote bone regeneration for medical applications such as coating prosthesis or bone grafts.

Scientists have found a way to make the strongest spider silk fibers: This new fiber was called hijuela de araña and its diameter is significantly greater than the natural fiber maximizing the load that can withstand before it breaks. This new feature along with the interesting mechanical and biocompatibility properties of the spider silk make this new material a suitable application for regenerative medicine.
