Prof. Rosa Villa, M.D., Ph.D. (female), (ORCID: 0000-0003-2735-3204) has worked at the Microelectronics Institute of Barcelona (IMB-CNM) since 1986 and from 2006 is permanent research staff of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and her group is part of the GBIO group -CIBER-BBN. Currently, she leads the Biomedical Application’s Group (GAB) of the IMB-CNM (http://gab.imb-cnm.csic.es/), which main research interest is the design and fabrication of Micro and Nano Systems for Biomedical Applications. Her training and experience in the biomedical field has driven the group to focus its research in unmet clinical needs in order to develop translational biomedical devices. She has co-authored 86 publications, 10 patents (3 licensing patents), 5 book chapters and founded a spin-off (BLB S.L.). Furthermore, she has participated in more than 30 National and European projects, being principal investigator in 10 of them. Her current research focuses on the development of ‘Organ-on-a-Chip’ systems—microfluidic devices that mimic the physiological conditions in cell culture—, graphene-based neurotechnologies for advanced neural interfaces, and biosensors She also leads a consolidated research group recognized by the Agència de Gestió d'Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca since 2014 (Bio-Micro-Nano-Systems group [2017 SGR 988]). Since 2014 she has co-managed the BioMEMs TECNIO group from the Generalitat de Catalunya. Highlight that the commitment to transfer in the research developed that is also reflected in obtaining approvals by the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices (AEMPS) for the realization of 3 clinical trials in collaboration with pharma companies.
