Nanobiomaterials Research Laboratory

Welcome to Nanobiomaterials Laboratory at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. Our research interest lies in designing and developing new functional materials, through assembly of nanoscale systems. We aim to improve material performance under aggressive biological environments, such as the connected to microbial corrosion, biofilms proliferation, biocorrosion and bioelectricity generation.

Since its inception in 2016, the Nanobiomaterials Lab has integrated students and researchers with diverse backgrounds ranging from biology, biochemistry, physics, biotechnology and engineering. We encourage interdisciplinary collaboration on projects at the nanobio interface.​
