Lorenzo Vannozzi

Lorenzo Vannozzi is a post-doctoral fellow at SSSA, within the “Micro-nano-bio systems and targeted therapies” Lab of the BioRobotics Institute. In 2013, he received a Master degree in Biomedical Engineering at University of Pisa, with a thesis entitled “Design and development of a 3D system for bio-hybrid actuation” and in 2017 he obtained a PhD in Biorobotics, defending a thesis entitled “Novel actuated microsystems”. His research activity deals with the exploration of 3D microfabrication technologies, included 3D bioprinting, for bioengineering purposes, and the design, development and testing of drug delivery platforms for local therapies. He has an interdisciplinary approach involving materials science, mechatronics and molecular biology. He supported the teaching activity of Prof. Leonardo Ricotti within the M.Sc course on “Miniaturized therapeutic and regenerative technologies”, with practical classes on material synthesis and characterization. He is author or co-author of 13 scientific publications. In 2018, he received the “Julia Polak European Doctorate Award” from the European Society of Biomaterials committee. He is or has been involved in different Italian and European projects (MOTU, M2Neural and GeT Small), for which he provided important technical contributions.
