The nature of the dominant matter component in the Universe, so-called dark matter, remains one of the biggest open questions in current particle physics. A compelling hypothesis that accommodates the observed relic abundance of dark matter is the existence of an electrically neutral and stable particle having weak interactions with the standard model particles, in addition to gravitational interactions, and a mass in the range of a few GeV up to several TeV. Such an extension of the SM could result in detectable signatures, and many models predict observable rates for the production of such particles at the LHC. In this talk, I will briefly review the status of some of the dark matter searches performed at the CMS experiment with the data collected in 2016 at 13 TeV. Guillelmo Gomez Ceballos
