Clinical Nanomedicine and Advanced Therapies Research Centre. Bioengineering, Cell Therapy and Surgery in Congenital Anomalies
The group’s main research areas are the study of myelomeningocele, more commonly known as spina bifida, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia. It is also researching lip and palate fissures, amniotic band constriction, gastroschisis, cell therapy and tissue engineering.
The clinical profile of the team is made up of paediatric surgeons, neonatologists and obstetricians, who work alongside biochemists, biotechnologists and biologists, in charge of basic research. Together they develop, among other lines, different animal models for the intrauterine correction of foetal anomalies, and promote translational research for human clinical application.
