Brief presentation of the institution

 The Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (CNM) is the largest public research and development centre in Micro-Nanosystems of Spain. It belongs to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC.

Founded in 1985, the CNM is comprised by three institutes located in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville. The Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona (IMB) is located in Bellaterra, on the campus of the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and is made up by around 200 persons. The main infrastructures of the IMB-CNM are the Integrated Clean Room of Micro and Nanofabrication and some complementary laboratories for microsystem processing, encapsulating of devices and electric characterisation. All together this equipment is considered an "Infraestructura Científica y Tecnológica Singular" (ICTS) [Singular Technological and Scientific Infrastructure].
 
Micro-Nano-Biosystems (MNBS) is one of the main research and development activities of the IMB-CNM and the line of work to which the members of the research group belong that participates in this project. The main mission of this group is to take advantage of technological capacities that the IMB-CNM offers in order to create microsystems applied to biomedicine, developing technologies and to craft innovative devices capable of providing novel solutions to different applications in this field.
 
The group has been considered Grup de Recerca de Qualitat by the Generalitat de Catalunya since 2001 (2009-2013 SGR 1074) and has received awards, among which and on two occasions the Premio Ciudad de Barcelona [City of Barcelona Award], in the Technical modality and in the field of Technological Research. Since 2006 the group has formed part of the CIBER-BBN (The Biomedical Research Networking center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine), created under the leadership of the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII) to promote research excellence and build a critical mass of researchers in the field of Biomedicine and Health Sciences.
 
The most relevant research that the group has opened, which has been the subject of investigation in recent years, is related to biomonitoring by means of micro-nano devices. With regard to the current project, the group has participated in various national and international projects, in some of them as leader, developing multisensor microsystems, among which stand out impedance, temperature and pH sensors for the monitoring of cardiac ischemia,   the feasibility of organs for transplant and corneal permeability. As a result of the research, various patents have been requested, some of them in exploitation and others currently in the negotiation phase.
