Smart Biomaterials Research Group (SBRG)
The SBRG was founded by Prof. María Vallet-Regí in the 1990s at the Faculty of Pharmacy of University Complutense of Madrid. Since then, our group have been devoted to the design, development and evaluation of biomaterials, mainly to those aimed for bone tissue regeneration and treatment of bone-related pathologies such as bone tumors, osteoporosis and bone infections.
Currently SBRG is an international reference in the field of biomaterials, with more than 800 articles, 20 books, 12 patens and more than 33 M € attracted since its foundation, being worldwide known as one of the most important research teams in the field of bioactive glasses and mesoporous materials for drug delivery.
The interested fellow would be integrated in the Mesoporous bioactive glasses unit, which is currently directed by three senior members: Professor Daniel Arcos, Dr. Isabel Izquierdo-Barba and Dr. Blanca González Ortiz, together with a group of three veterinarian researchers responsible for in vivo preclinical studies and a hematologist responsible of the development of humanized matrixes (see project description below)
Finally, the wide network of European collaborators allow us develop biomaterials from their initial design until preclinical in vivo studies
