About us

The Biomolecular Engineering Lab @UCIBIO, REQUIMTE (FCT/UNL) in interface with iBET, was established in 2008 by Prof. Cecília Roque and is composed by a multidisciplinary team with expertise in Applied and Computational Chemistry, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Physics of Materials.

Our group is dedicated to MINIMAL BIOMIMETIC SYSTEMS, namely combining designed molecular recognition agents with functional materials, which together find applications in Bioseparation, Biocatalysis, Sensing & Diagnostics, and Nanomedicine.
