Since 1983, The Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering(CREB) of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya(UPC) has been serving the needs of research, technological development, innovation and knowledge transfer of companies, hospitals and institutions related to the field of Health technologies.
The CREB’s multidisciplinary staff includes more than 80 researchers, doctors (50%) and graduates in engineering and other disciplines. Our research teams and facilities are in the heart of UPC’s Pedralbes campus, giving solution to any need or demand from the biomedical field.
Our applied research is organized in seven research areas: Biomaterials; Biomedical signals and systems; Dosimetry and medical radiation; Graphics computing (serious games); Biomechanics; Robotics and vision; and Instrumentation and eHealth. From these areas we support and promote innovation and collaboration, as well as excellence in research, scholarship, and training.
