The Institute

The Bionanomechanics group was established in 2005 with the aim of developing novel analytical tools based in nanotechnology for biological applications and with a focus in nanomechanical sensing.


Our laboratory is located in Tres Cantos, a quiet and easy-going town 30 km north of Madrid and close to the Sierra de Madrid mountains. We have frequent and convenient communication with Madrid and with the airport by train and bus.


The Bionanomechanics research is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Comunidad de Madrid and European Union. We also receive private funding through collaboration with our industrial partners.


The multidisciplinary and technologically challenging nature of our research requires of a network of international collaborators for the successful accomplishment of the research objectives. We collaborate with reference groups in the fields of micro- nanofabrication, micro- nanofluidics, theory, molecular dynamics simulations and cancer biology.
