Basic sciences like Physics and Chemistry have been very important for the progress of knowledge and the posterior use of this knowledge in applications of practical interest. This process has been possible due to the development of mathematical models which allowed evaluating assumptions and predict the behavior of systems.


In the ambit of biological systems, the complexity and diversity of these systems have historically been a huge wall for the use of mathematical models. Nowadays, the of use of computational resources and the accelerated process of improvement of the understanding of biological systems at the molecular and particularly cell levels have led us to the threshold of a new situation. Today computational biology is an unstoppable machine of understanding and generation of new practical applications.


The group BIOCOMSC has been accepted as consolidated research group by the Generalitat of Catalonia under number 2014SGR1093. The aim of the group is the use of computational methods to address complex problems in biomedicine and biophysics and takes part on several PhD programmes:

The group is formed by the three labs of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya listed below.


Discrete Modelling and Simulation of Biological Systems (MOSIMBIO)


Group of physicists, mathematicians, biologists and agronomists that investigate topics on microbiology from an interdisciplinary perspective. 


Non-linear Physics and out of Equilibrium Systems (NOLIN)


Researchers working in very interdisciplinary topics, where non-linear science explores the borders between Physics, Chemistry and Biology.



Microgravity Lab


We perform experimental, analytical and numerical studies that provide understanding on multiphase flows which can be used to develop new technologies for space exploration applications.
