Emerging molecular technologies based on micro and

nano-structured systems with biomedical applications



TehnoBioMed project aims to increase the institutional performance of 6 partners with a rich tradition in research, development and innovation (RDI) joined in a consortium with a strong interdisciplinary character designed to develop emerging molecular technologies based on micro- and nanostructured systems and dedicated to biomedical applications.

The project consortium consists of 6 partners distributed in 3 university centers with a tradition in the RDI activity – Cluj-Napoca, Bucharest and Iasi – and 3 national institutes and 3 prestigious universities. The consortium partners are distributed in three different development regions of Romania.

The project aims to develop new or significantly improved products / technologies / services of which we mention the following:

a. Developing a high-resolution OCT imaging equipment with applications in biomedicine and material science

b. Designing, manufacturing and testing of a nano-ELISA technology

c. Making new systems with improved antimicrobial activity and increased efficiency against bacterial biofilm formation

d. Obtaining compounds/materials with impact in the prevention and control of infections
