Francesco Fontana

Francesco Fontana is a Ph.D. student in Biorobotics at The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. In 2017 he received the Master degree in Chemical Engineering at University of Salerno, with a thesis entitled “Configuration of a plant for supercritical CO2 – assisted electrospinning”. His research activity regards the development of an in vitro highly controlled combined stimulation system (low intensity ultrasounds plus electromagnetic pulses) of relevant cell lines for modelling neuropathies (in particular the Guillain-Barrè syndrome). The aim is to bring anti-inflammatory and regenerative effects. The second topic concerns the development and characterization of engineered nanocomposite hydrogels for cartilage regeneration.
