Biomedical polymers

The Biomedical Polymers Division (DPB) of INTEMA started its research activities in polymeric biomaterials in 1991 and it is nowadays a referent in this field, with more than 25 years in research activities, teaching, formation of human resources (graduate and post-graduate), extension, collaboration with industries and services.


The research activities aim improving the life quality through the design, synthesis, characterization and processing of functional polymeric biomaterials, with biomimetic features and ability to load therapeutic agents and to interact with tissues or organs.


Academic formation of professionals in the biomaterials field is essential for the development of activities in the DPB.


DPB infrastructure and highly-qualified human resources offer solutions to problems coming from the socio-productive sectors, meeting the requirements from society and industry. 


Progress in biomaterials science and technology requires a multidisciplinary approach, and DPB collaborates with national and international research centers, looking for complementarity and excellence in all its activities.


Current research lines:

  • Synthesis and characterization of biomedical polymers
  • Design and preparation of biocompatible and biomimetic polymeric scaffolds (fibrous, porous, hidrogels, films, etc.)
  • Polymeric and composite processing by electrohydrodynamic techniques and additive manufacture
  • Active agents encapsulation
  • Surface modification (chemical, physical, biological)




  • Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
  • Controlled release of therapeutic agents
  • Biomedical devices
  • Functional textiles
  • Other applications for electrospun micro/nanofibrous materials
