Federica Iberite

Federica Iberite is a Ph.D. student in Biorobotics at SSSA, within the “Micro-nano-bio systems and targeted therapies” Lab of The BioRobotics Institute.
In 2017 she received a Master’s Degree in Genetics and Molecular Biology in Basic and Biomedical Research at “Sapienza” University of Rome, with a dissertation about the functional characterization of a novel long non-coding RNA involved in the regulation of Neurogenin2, a master gene of neural differentiation. During her university career, she received two grants for academic merits.
Her current research activity concerns the integration of living and non-living elements for the development of biohybrid actuators by exploiting muscle cells contraction ability. She is also investigating the effect of different mechanical stimuli on cell differentiation for regenerative medicine purposes.
