APACHE “Atmospheric Pressure plasma meets biomaterials for bone Cancer Healing” is a Starting Grant project, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and lead by Dr. Cristina Canal who, in collaboration with a young and dynamic team, is carrying top of mind research within the Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering group (BBT) at the new Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).

APACHE’s main aim is focused in the design of a novel therapy for bone cancer by taking advantage of the active species generated by cold Plasmas in combination with biomaterials to deliver the active species locally to the diseased site.
