Bioengineering and Chronobiology Laboratory (LBC)

The research group called Bioengineering and Chronobiology Laboratory, integrated in the atlanTTic group, works on the development and application of statistical methodology and signal processing, following a fundamentally practical and clinical approach, to improve the people’s health.

For more than 30 years, it has led projects and research projects in areas such as aging, epidemiology, oncology, pharmacology, endocrinology or the development of new methods of data analysis.
