The NanoMatLab research is developed in close collaboration with national and international partners and is funded by industrial contracts, by European Union programs and by the Portuguese National Foundation.

The research lines include:

  • nanostructured biotribological materials/nanostructured functionalized Si-based materials/nanostructured cementitious hidraulic binders: Rogério Colaço
  • drug release from hydrogels/biotribology/adsorption on biomaterials surfaces: Ana Paula Serro
  • nanostructured materials and mechanical behavior at nm/pN scales: Patrícia Almeida Carvalho
  • molecular modelling of complex fluids and materials: José Nuno A. Canongia Lopes
  • macromolecules adsorption on biomaterials surfaces/ionic liquids: Benilde Saramago
