Jacobo Paredes MS Mechanical Engineer (2007) and MS Biomedical Engineering (2009), University of Navarra Tecnun. He joined CEIT-BRTA to carry out his PhD in the field of biosensors which he completed in 2012. Between 2013 and 2014 he conduceted a postdoctoral research period at the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, in the area of biomedical devices for the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Jacobo is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Science at Tecnun, the School of Engineering of the University of Navarra. He teaches several courses related to Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering in both undergraduate and master programs. His research interests focus on the development of 3D tissue models from polymeric scaffolds with customized mechanical and morphological properties. He is also particularly interested in the development of innovative projects and technology transfer.
