Universitat Rovira i Virgili
Universitat Rovira i Virgili is a public university located in Tarragona, Spain. Interfibio is a research group formed in 2004 to create a critical mass of researchers of the Department of Chemical Engineering of the URV working at the bio/material interface. The team combines long experience in bioelectrochemistry, physical chemistry, molecular biology and nanotechnology/materials science. Most research of the group is centred in the exploitation of breakthroughs at the confluence of bio-, micro- and nano-technologies to create low-cost non-invasive intelligent diagnosis systems. Research activities also focus on the development of new sensors and relevant amplification systems for applications in microarrays and the selection and exploitation of aptamers.
