About us:

CINBIO is a public multidisciplinary research center, under the umbrella of Universidade de Vigo (UVigo), focused on developing groundbreaking research in two main areas: nanomaterials and biomedicine. CINBIO was created in 2009 and hosts more than 170 staff members distributed in 15 different research groups that clusters chemists, physicists, biologists and material scientists with extensive experience in research and academic tasks.

Since 2016, CINBIO has been acknowledged as a Research Centre of Excellence by the Regional Government receiving financial support with a three/four-year framework to implement strategic improvements in personnel and infrastructure, enhancing its recognition at the local, regional, national and international levels. After a consolidation period, CINBIO has designed a strategic research program to be implemented during 2023-2026, to achieve a consolidated interaction between the two main research areas. By bringing together experts from various disciplines, the center strives to drive innovation in nanotechnology and biomedicine, aiming to make outstanding contributions to society and improve the lives of people around the world.
