We present searches for massive top and bottom quark partners at CMS using data collected at sqrt(s)=7 and 8 TeV. Such partners can be found in models predicting (vector-like) quarks to solve the Hierarchy problem and stabilize the Higgs mass. The searches span a range of final states, from multi-leptonic to entirely hadronic, and limits are set on mass and production cross sections as a function of branching ratios.
