Research Projects to transform Mexico

Robotics for Physical Impairment
Robotics for Physical Impairment

Rogelio Soto and Ernesto Rodríguez Leal, both Ph.D., from our School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, conducted research and development studies on exoskeletons that benefit people with disabilities, and the elderly with reduced or lost natural mobility.

Regenerating cells to Recover Eyesight
Regenerating cells to Recover Eyesight

Corneal transplants are unfair, and primarily insufficient. Consequently, the research of Dean Ph.D. Jorge Valdez García and Ph.D. Judith Zavala of the Ophthalmology and Visual Science Research Group at the Medicine School focuses on the creation of new corneas from an existing cornea.

Mati-tec: education for all
Mati-tec: education for all

By using Math Educational Apps installed in cell phones, Ph.D. Juan Carlos Olmedo, researcher of the Department of Communication and Digital Arts at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico City campus, has succeeded at improving low-income children´s mathematics scores.

Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology has endless applications in fields such as industry, medicine, and even in environmental sciences. The investigation of the research professors at Tecnológico de Monterrey focuses on different disciplines.

Projects of research professors at Tecnológico de Monterrey:

Joaquín Oseguera, Department of Mechatronics, Mexico State campus, “Nanostructured Materials”; Nancy Ornelas and Flavio Contreras, “Environmental Nanotechnology Laboratory”, School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus; Marco Antonio Rito, School of Biotechnology and Food Science, Monterrey campus, “Device Attachable to Cell Phone to Detect Diabetes in Saliva Samples”; and Ph.D. Alex Elías, School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, “Nanofibers for Manufacturing Surgical Mesh Used in Abdominal Hernia Repair”.

Biotechnology for a Guaranteed Food Supply
Biotechnology for a Guaranteed Food Supply

Biotechnology is crucial; therefore, it requires sustainable technological modernization. Ph.D. Silverio García Lara from our School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, and Bram Govaerts of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT, by its Spanish acronym), collaborate in a project for the Sustainable Modernization of Traditional Agriculture (MasAgro) in Mexico.

Life Options for Vulnerable Communities
Life Options for Vulnerable Communities

Ph.D. Carlos Brambila from our School of Government and Public Transformation, Santa Fe campus, works with rural communities without access to advanced technology in order to increase their agricultural productivity.

Mechatronics at the service of society
Mechatronics at the service of society

Robot Teco is the best example of how mechatronics impacts society. Ph.D. Pedro Ponce from our Graduate School of Engineering, Mexico City campus, developed a robotic application that helps education and health sectors, and improves productivity.

Building a Fair and Safe Country
Building a Fair and Safe Country

One chapter remains pending in Mexico: safety and justice. For that reason, Ph.D. Pedro Torres, from the School of Government and Public Transformation at Tecnológico de Monterrey, seeks to have an impact by creating knowledge applied to the needs and issues afflicting Mexican institutions dealing with security, safety and justice.
