CMBM members and activities
The CMBM multidisciplinary configuration entails the possibility of bringing the investigation of large and complex problems to a single research unit. This operational configuration leads to larger warranties about activity performance, quality and reliability of results, in the light of an extended working experience along the last decade, performed on international basis and properly documented. Cost reduction is also a direct consequence of human and equipment resources concentration.
Leading competencies in different fields are integrated, within the area of mechanics of biologic materials (tissues mechanics and biomaterials), biochemistry (processes biochemistry), metallurgy (metallic materials), manufacturing techniques (products manufacturing and characterization), mechatronics (mechanical system control and automation) and applied economics (evaluation of feasibility).
The mentioned topics of applied research, pertaining to the area of biomedical and material engineering, are directly correlated with correspondent clinical and surgical activities and with industrial production, moving within a large field of applications and interacting with a vast market, that proves to have a strong relevance from economic and social point of view, with main regard to health care systems.
Resources for research and educational activities are obtained by means of projects financed by European Community, Ministries of research and education, international centres and research laboratories, international foundations and industries operating in the areas of biomechanics, bioengineering, biochemistry and material engineering.
CMBM developed and maintains international relationships with universities and centre of excellence in research operating in Europe and North America.
CMBM conducts an activity of advanced education in international field, mainly financed from European Community, for post-lauream and post-doctoral education, throughout specific courses and permanent educational paths.
Teaching and scientific activity is documented by means of publications on international scientific journals, books and reports, which offer a wide and detailed description of the work performed.
