Biomedical Engineering

The doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering is an inter-university programme that has been offered by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the University of Zaragoza (Unizar) since the 2003-2004 academic year. A collaboration agreement between the two universities was signed in 2003 to define the framework for this partnership. To view this agreement, click on the following link: https://esaii.upc.edu/ca/docencia/doctorats/convenio_original_uz_upc_2003.pdf
Courses and research activities are offered on the campuses of both organising universities. The programme is coordinated by the UPC’s Department of Automatic Control (ESAII).
In 2011, following the adoption of new royal decrees governing official university studies and doctoral programmes, a new agreement was concluded to offer the joint doctoral programme in Biomedical Engineering in its current form. The full text of the agreement that governs the participation of the two universities and the organisation of the programme can be found at: https://esaii.upc.edu/ca/docencia/doctorats/convenio_uz_upc_2011.pdf
In 2012, the agreement was updated with an addendum that brought the text in line with the new regulatory framework for doctoral studies. The addendum can be found at: https://esaii.upc.edu/ca/docencia/doctorats/adenda_convenio_UPCUZ2012.pdf
Students of the programme can enrol at either of the two universities and will be administratively dependent on the institution they choose. Students may take any course or activity offered within the framework of the inter-university programme.
The joint doctoral programme in Biomedical Engineering offered by the UPC and Unizar has received a series of annual awards granted by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in recognition of its quality and excellence:

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the scientific field of the programme, there are a wide range of degrees that qualify applicants for admission. For the near future, the applicants considered most suitable for admission to the doctoral programme in Biomedical Engineering will be bachelor’s degree holders with a scientific and technological background who have completed a master's degree in Biomedical Engineering or one related to the scientific field of the programme. In addition to this academic background, it is considered important that applicants have certain personal characteristics—namely, an interest in the research projects carried out within the framework of the programme; critical and analytical skills; initiative and perseverance in their academic work; the ability to work in a team; and the ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Criteria for admission to the programme include the following:

• Particular consideration will be given to personal contact with the student based on interviews, questionnaires or exercises aimed at assessing their suitability for the programme and motivation.
• Other factors, such as knowledge of languages and previous research experience, will also be considered.

Selection criteria and weighting
To give priority to applicants who meet all of the entry requirements, admission criteria will be weighted as follows:
• Academic record: 50%.
• Personal contact and interview: 25%.
• Motivation: 5%.
• Knowledge of languages: 10%.
• Experience and research: 10%.
The body responsible for admission of students is the Joint Programme Studies Committee for the doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the University of Zaragoza. In accordance with the collaboration agreement between the two universities, this committee may authorise the programme coordinators at each university to assume responsibility for the admission process.

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration. Bridging courses will provide research training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. The natural pathway for entry to the doctoral programme is via the master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering. Graduates of this master’s degree are not required to take any bridging courses.

Depending on their academic background, students admitted from other master’s degrees may be required to take subjects from the master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering as bridging courses (less than 60 ECTS credits). In all cases, bridging courses will provide research training and will be proposed by the Studies Committee based on each student’s curriculum vitae.

As in the case of admission decisions, the body responsible for determining what bridging courses a student must take will be the Studies Committee for the joint doctoral programme in Biomedical Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the University of Zaragoza.

This decision will be based on the subjects the student took for their master's degree and the research area of their thesis. The Studies Committee for the programme will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish criteria to limit their duration.
Depending on their previous academic training, students may be required to take some of the following subjects from the master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering:
• Fundamentals of Molecular and Cellular Biology
• Fundamentals of Biophysics
• Fundamentals of Physiology
• Fundamentals of Pathophysiology
• Fundamentals of Informatics and Communications
• Fundamentals of Mathematics
• Fundamentals of Physics
• Fundamentals of Circuit Theory, Electronics and Automatic Control
• Bioelectricity and Bioelectromagnetism
• Physiological Control Models and Systems
• Biomaterials
• Biomedical Devices
• Biomedical Imaging
• Biomedical Instrumentation
• Methods for Modelling and Simulation of Biosystems
• Biomedical Signals
• Statistical Analysis of Biomedical Data
• Advanced Analysis and Processing of Biomedical Signals
• Analysis and Visualisation of Medical Images in 2D and 3D
• Biomechanics
• Dosimetry of Ionising Radiations
• Clinical Engineering and Healthcare Models
•Tissue Engineering
• Hospital Engineering
• Microsystems and Nanobioengineering
• Development and Design of Biomedical Equipment and Systems
• Radiation and Human Health
• Medical Robotics
• Bioinformatics
• Fundamentals and Techniques of Instrumental Analysis
• Medical Informatics and Telemedicine
• Medical Radiophysics
• Wireless/FDTD/FEM Simulation Techniques for Biomedical Applications
Subjects from the master's degree linked to the programme have well-defined objectives, methodologies and assessment processes that will enable doctoral students to acquire the skills specified in the previous sections.

In any case, depending on a student’s academic background, the Studies Committee may make adaptations with respect to the bridging courses required.
Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the Studies Committee for the programme may propose measures that complement those specified in these regulations, and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

The enrolment period for new doctoral students will be in September.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

After the first year, the enrolment period for doctoral students will run from September to mid-October.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients demonstrate an increased incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) with declining kidney functioning as a consequence of blood potassium ([K+]) homeostasis impairment, which is restored by hemodialysis (HD) therapy. The clinically established method for the diagnosis of [K+] imbalance is blood tests, an invasive and costly procedure that limits continuous monitoring of ESRD patients. A non-invasive ambulatory index, able to quantify changes in [K+] level is an open issue. In this context, the electrocardiogram (ECG) and in particular, the T wave (TW) morphology, has been shown to be strongly correlated with [K+] imbalance. Therefore, the aim of this dissertation is to investigate and to propose TW-derived markers able to monitor changes in [K+] levels in ESRD patients undergoing HD. For that purpose, the time warping analysis, a technique that allows the comparison and quantification of differences between two different TW shapes, was investigated. The application of TW time warping based markers in monitoring [K+ ] variations (¿[K+]) and the derivation of a heart-rate corrected marker is proposed and compared with respect to two well-established ¿[K+]-related TW-based indexes. All the markers are evaluated in a single lead approach and after having emphasised the TW energy content through spatial transformation by Principal Component Analysis (PCA). Results demonstrate that the proposed biomarkers outperform the already proposed indexes, also proving that the use of PCA transformed lead generates markers with a higher correlation with ¿[K+] than the single lead approach. The possibility to improve markers robustness in the case of low signal-to-noise ratio ECGs, by spatially transforming the signal maximising the beat-to-beat TW periodicity criteria through the so-called Periodic Component Analysis (pCA), is then explored. pCA-based markers show superior performance during and after the HD than those obtained by PCA suggesting improved stability for continuous ¿[K+] tracking. The thesis studies also the application of regressions models to quantify ¿[K+] from pCA-based time warping markers. The accuracy of the regression models is evaluated by correlation and estimation error between the actual and the corresponding model-estimated ¿[K+] values, and the smallest estimation error is found for quadratic regression models. Being the time warping derived markers sensitive to TW boundary delineation errors, which may endanger their prognostic power, the advantages of using a weighting stage is investigated for their robust computation. The performance of two weighting functions (WF)s is tested and compared with respect to the control no weighting case, in simulated scenarios and in real scenarios (i.e. for [K+] monitoring and SCD risk stratification). No improvements in [K+] monitoring are found, probably due to the considerable marked [K+]-induced TW morphological changes. On the contrary, both simulation tests and SCD risk stratification analysis show that the proposed WFs can enhance the robustness of TW time warping analysis against TW delineation errors. In conclusion, this Doctoral Thesis confirms the hypothesis that enhanced perforce in ¿[K+] tracking and quantification can be achieved by analysing the overall TW morphology by time warping analysis. The simplicity of the technology, together with its low cost and ease of acquisition, should provide a new opportunity for TW analysis to reach standard clinical practice. Moreover, the use of WFs to minimise the undesired effects of TW delineation errors on the computation of time warping markers revealed a noticeable improvement of the SCD risk stratification power of time warping derived indexes.

    Thesis abstract: Oncogenic pathologies are the second leading cause of death worldwide only after cardiovascular diseases. It is estimated that, by 2030, the number of patients diagnosed with this disease will increase by nearly a 70%, reaching 21 million cases per year (World Health Organization, WHO). From all these cases, only 35% of patients will successfully overcome the disease. Malignancies present a very heterogenous and unpredictable curse, often making the diagnosis and treatment, an arduous task for clinicians. In order to tackle the complexity of this disease, novel strategies have emerged, not only to investigate cancer cells, but also the cancer cell interactions with the other cell populations coexisting within the tumor microenvironment, as well as the extracellular matrix embedding all of them. Within the last 10 to 20 years, an increasing effort has been made to mimic native tumor properties in order to understand in vivo processes. Traditional 2D cultures are being replaced with more complex 3D scaffolds, where crucial aspects of cancer biology are replicated. Therefore, reproducing tumor architecture, biochemical composition and mechanical properties provides resident cells with multidimensional biochemical and mechanotransducive signaling cues, which results in an in vivo-like cell behavior. Based on the idea of providing complex 3D in vitro models to study cancer development and progression, I developed a 3D scaffold based on extracellular matrix deposited by mesenchymal cells, known as cell-derived extracellular matrix (CDM). In particular, I provided cells with a 3D microenvironment by culturing them on top of poly-lactic acid microcarriers. This 3D architecture, together with the addition of macromolecular crowders, enhanced cell ability to deposit their own extracellular matrix, ultimately resulting in the generation of cell-derived matrix scaffolds. The characterization of decellularized and microcarriers-free 3D matrices revealed a highly fibrillar structure based on its composition. Moreover, tailoring the production conditions of the matrices, I was able to obtain structures with varied composition as well as mechanical properties. Then, I repopulated CDMs with different colorectal cancer cell lines to generate a 3D in vitro cancer model. Repopulated CDMs showed a reduced cellular death in response to chemotherapeutic drugs, mimicking in vivo drug resistance provided by a biochemically and biomechanically complex 3D structure. Stromal cells, and in particular fibroblasts, are a key tumor microenvironment cell population that closely interacts with malignant cells. Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) play an important role in the remodeling and stiffening of the extracellular matrix surrounding tumor. In the present thesis, I studied the role of the progressively stiffer substrate upon normal fibroblasts and cancer-associated fibroblasts. Obtained results highlighted that, substrate/extracellular matrix stiffening is not enough for altered activation of healthy fibroblasts, but it plays an important role in the dysregulation of Hippo pathway in CAFs, a key signaling pathway involved in uncontrolled cell proliferation, tissue remodeling and abnormal growth processes. Finally, CDMs were repopulated with CAFs and colorectal cancer cell lines to study the interactions between the different cell types and the surrounding extracellular matrix scaffolds. Obtained results highlighted again the matrix remodeling potential of cancer-associated fibroblasts due to their interaction with malignant cells and the dysregulation of the Hippo pathway. In conclusion, this thesis highlights cell-derived matrices as a promising 3D in vitro model to study cancer disease development and progression, as CDMs mimic closely the native tumor microenvi-ronment properties. Further research in this field could potentially establish this platform as a fundamental tool for drug screening and target discovery assays.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis is framed in the ERC Starting Grant Project ¿Atmospheric Pressure plAsma meets biomaterials for bone Cancer HEaling (APACHE)¿. The APACHE Project aims at evaluating plasma technology as therapy against bone cancer. At present, bone sarcomas are one of the cancers with worst prognosis and most difficult treatment. Among the different kinds of bone sarcomas, osteosarcoma (OS) has the highest incidence. Current therapies for OS, based on surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are not completely effective and present undesirable adverse effects. Cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP), consisting in highly reactive ionized gases, have been demonstrated to induce lethal effects in different kinds of cancers without damaging surrounding tissues. CAP are a source of a high amount of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) that affect cancer cells by complex biochemical processes. These RONS are thought to be the main responsible of the effects of plasma in cancer cells, that are significantly more sensitive to them than non- malignant cells. These RONS can induce from cell cycle arrest at low plasma doses, to apoptosis at higher doses, as has been described for other cancers in in vitro and in vivo models. In spite of the knowledge of plasma effects in distinct types of cancer, the available studies about mechanisms involved in anti-tumor effect in OS are still limited. CAP can be used to produce RONS in liquids, known as plasma-conditioned liquids (PCL), that have been demonstrated to produce comparable effects to direct CAP treatment. Accordingly, the aim of this thesis is to investigate the application of this new therapy for OS by the use of PCL as a potential therapy for local treatment. For this purpose, in this PhD Thesis in Chapter 1 first the generation of RONS by CAP in plasma-conditioned culture media (PCM) is investigated and related with the cytotoxic effects induced in OS cells and non-malignant bone precursors. In Chapter 2, the cytotoxic effects of the PCL constituted by Ringer¿s saline are evaluated at selective conditions in different OS cell lines and non-malignant bone precursors as well as in ex vivo mouse tumor tissues. In Chapter 3, the existing knowledge about CAP in OS and current challenges to overcome are reviewed and discussed. Finally, in Chapter 4 the effect of PCL is studied in different OS cultures, in 3D bioengineered tumor models and in an in vivo mouse models, focusing in the evaluation of antioxidant defenses, molecular pathways and the impact on OS subpopulations with stem properties. As main conclusion, we can confirm that PCL have shown efficient agents against OS through to the production of long-lived RONS, which determine the selective cytotoxic effect in OS and non-malignant cells. PCL are able to trigger anti-tumorigenic signaling and apoptotic cell death in OS cells by the induction of oxidative stress. However, insufficient levels of RONS may induce pro-survival factors of stress response in vitro and to be pro-tumorigenic in vivo. Specifically, cancer cells with elevated antioxidant ability, like cancer stem cells, display increased resistance to PCL. We have demonstrated that targeting the STAT3 transcription factor, we can inhibit the expression of antioxidant defenses and the cytotoxic effect of PCL can be enhanced, inducing cell death in OS PCL-resistant and cancer stem cells in vitro and effectively reducing tumor volume in vivo.

    Thesis abstract: Substantial research efforts in the field of tissue engineering have been done in the recent years to overcome the bone regeneration limitations of the human body and to treat bone-related pathologies like osteosarcoma. Nanotechnology offers limitless ways to improve bone regeneration and to fight bone cancer by means of hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles (NPs) and through the design of small organic molecules with capacity to trigger specific biological reactions. In the present thesis, the implementation of these molecules in cancer therapy and in the bone regeneration field is studied, and their interaction with biological systems is investigated.Chapter 1 offers a general perspective of the topic and introduces the state of the art with the main strategies for bone cancer therapy and bone regeneration reported in the literature. Chapter 2 explores the use of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles for bone cancer therapies, with a view to elucidate the underlying cytotoxic mechanism. Moreover, the techniques commonly used to study the cellular uptake of these materials are compared with more novel characterisation alternatives. Indeed, implementation of cryo-soft X-ray tomography is presented as a key tool for tracking and monitoring the fate of internalised HA NPs, as it allows visualising both solid and liquid calcium deposits resulting from the dissolution of the nanomaterials. Chapter 3 investigates the use of gelatine microspheres (MS) as carriers of HA NPs for bone regeneration. Additionally, the ionic doping of these NPs with Mg2+, Zn2+ and Sr2+, with recognised benefits in the bone remodelling process, is studied and their release kinetics in cell culture medium is further quantified. Although dissolution and precipitation events take places simultaneously, MS demonstrate to be an effective method to deliver the therapeutical loaded ions. Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 focus on the design of bioinks as a strategy for bone tissue engineering. Alginate is chosen as the bioink binder due to its mild and straight-forward cross-linking process, as well as for its high tuneability and adequate rheological properties. Two different strategies are proposed to solve the poor bioactivity of this polymer to confer biological functionality to the cells embedded in the inks. Chapter 4 studies the incorporation of different types of MS (gelatine, gelatine containing HA NPs and calcium-deficient HA) to the formulation of these cell-laden inks. Furthermore, two cross-linking procedures are compared. Both, the addition of MS and the cross-linking using Ca2+-supplemented cell culture medium, result in increased stiffness of the bioinks. Importantly, the capacity of cells to migrate to the MS in the bioink formulation affected the cellular performance. In the case of inks loaded with gelatine-containing MS, promotion of cell migration, attachment and proliferation inside the bioink was observed, but this was not the case for the fully mineral MS, despite its superior osteogenic differentiation potential when cells were cultured directly onto the HA-containing MS. Finally, Chapter 5 explores the use of two peptidomimetics with selective activity towards a5ß1 and avß3 integrins, which play a crucial role in the osteogenic pathway. Alginate polymer is functionalised with these molecules prior to the preparation of the cell-laden inks. The use of both non-peptidic ligands results in enhanced osteogenic differentiation of the mesenchymal stem cells embedded in the bioinks. Besides, the boost of osteodifferentiation is higher than in the traditional RGD-coupled alginate hydrogels.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
