Welcome to the web site of the Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CIQUS). Here you will find information about the research areas, groups and scientists that comprise this center, and also about its organization, facilities, services and other data of interest. CIQUS is a member of the Singular Research Centers Network, a core structure of  the Campus of International Excellence– Campus Vida project, and it is focused towards the application of transdisciplinary strategies to solve relevant problems in the field of biological chemistry and in the development of novel functional materials.

Young researchers of CIQUS had a very successful participation at the XIII Meeting of the Specialized Group of Polymers (Spanish Royal Societies of Chemistry and Physics), which was held in Girona, last 7th to 10th of September. PhD student Seila Leiras won the prize to the Best Oral Presentation in its panel, with her communication entitled "Stereocomplex formation in helical polymers by a precise tuning on their secondary structure".
