Our interest is the potential application of nanostructures in the biomedical field:

  • Standarisation of methods to check biocompatibility, toxicity and immunogenicity of nanoparticles.
  • Biosensors using antibodies and nanostructures with different applications.
  • Design of nanomaterials.
  • Transcriptomic and proteomic studies in tuberculosis patients and their contacts.
  • Immune profile against TB vaccines.

  • Development of new vaccines in collaboration with groups designing prototypes of nanostructures.  Studies of the immune response to vaccines using different routes of administration (intranasal or intramuscularly).
  • Nanovaccines.


We are working in the design of immunological techniques to detect quickly and accurately the presence of different marine organisms and toxins.
