ECaBox is being developed by an interdisciplinary collaboration between seven research centres.

In Barcelona, the project is coordinated by Pia Cosma at the CRG in collaboration with Ricardo Casaroli at the Universitat de Barcelona and Núria Montserrat Pulido at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia.

International collaborations include the teams led by Yossi Mandel at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, Rui Reis at the Association for the Advancement of Tissue Engineering and Cell Based Technologies & Therapies in Portugal, Mauro Atti at AFERETICA in Italy and Jack Lee at King’s College London in the UK.
