CIC biomaGUNE is a non-profit research organization created in 2006 to promote scientific research and technological innovation at the highest levels in the Basque Country. At CIC biomaGUNE state of the art research is conducted at the interface between the chemical, biological and physical sciences with a main focus on molecular scale properties and applications of biological nanostructures. The final aim of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the functioning of biological systems at the molecular and nanometer scale. The center is composed of 11 international research teams grouped in three Units: the Biofunctional Nanomaterials Unit, the Biosurfaces Unit and the Molecular Imaging Unit. This Facility, which has been designed and constructed to become an international platform in the field of in vivo molecular and functional imaging, has been approved as a Singular Scientific and Technological Platform (ICTS) by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
