Simone Russo

Simone Russo received his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Università di Pisa (Pisa, Italy) in 2014 and his master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) in 2017. During recent years, he has conducted extensive research and development on tissue engineering. Simone was an Internship Student at Researcher Center “E. Piaggio” (Pisa, Italy) where he designed and prototyped a new holder for membrane bioreactors to create a valid substitution of animal experimentation for living model. Then, he joined as Visiting Research Assistant the Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine department at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (London, United Kingdom). Here, his main activities were decellularizing tissues/organs and projecting/testing new bioreactors for tissue engineering applications, focusing on re-vascularization process of organs. Later, Simone came back to Milan, pursuing his activities as a Researcher at the Cell and Tissue Engineering Lab (IRCCS Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute, Milan, Italy): his main research field was tissue engineering of cartilage to develop a new predictive model for rehabilitation through a customized bioreactor. In his PhD project Simone is working on bone tissue engineering with biodegradable scaffolds. The aim is developing a combined in-vitro/in-silico model of bone regeneration on biodegradable scaffolds.
