Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Departamento de Bioingeniería e Ingeniería Aeroespacial (UC3M-BIA) work is mainly focused on medical and molecular imaging technology research, and the use of such devices and methods in challenging, state-of-the-art biomedical experiments. This includes the development of new, application-driven technologies, advanced reconstruction and post-processing algorithms, and their practical application in the fields of CT, Nuclear Imaging, MRI and Optical Tomography. The group is markedly multidisciplinary covering the engineering aspects of the devices to the design of functionalized nanoparticles-based probes aimed to specific biomarkers. This work is done in close connection with real clinical and preclinical users, and collaborations with hospitals and biomedical research centers facilitate a fast validation of the results achieved, also enabling a fast transfer of results to the industry. Several devices developed by this group have reached a world-wide commercialization. With regard to the TB application, the group maintains a partnership with the Microbiology Department of the Hospital GU Gregorio Marañón (Madrid), whose solid experience in clinical and molecular biology tuberculosis facilitates translation of the results to clinical applications.
