Center for Studies, Investigation and Innovation in Biofunctional Materials and Biotechnology – CEIIMB

CEIIMB’s main goal is to keep UNIFEI’s research teams at the forefront of scientific knowledge in Metals, Ceramics and Polymers in nanotecnological scale, developing applications for these materials in medicine and pharmaceutical technology.

In order to reach this goal, CEIIMB enlists professors from different but complementary areas in Chemistry, Pharmacy/Biochemistry, Physics and Engineering, comprising a multidisciplinary research network This goal is particularly important, as the studies in materials science and technology in nanotechnological scale are still incipient, and expected to develop extraordinarily in the 21st century, especially in the Health area.

CEIIMB also develops research and studies on fundamental structural properties of new materials in molecular scale, looking to understand the basic principles involved, and to develop new structures through molecular engineering for technological applications in the health area.
