About supervisors
  • Monica Sandri graduated in Chemistry, PhD degree in Material Science and actually Director of Research at CNR-ISSMC. With long expertise on the study of biomimetic nanostructured hybrid and polymer hydrogels and bioinks designed for the development of 3D scaffolds for bone and cartilage tissues regeneration, of medicated membranes for chronic wound management and of 3D in vitro predictive models for the investigation of personalized therapies. ---------------------------------------------------------- Pietro Galizia is researcher at ISSMC since 2013. He is focused on the mechanical and microstructural characterisation of ceramic composites for the extreme applications. He holds both Doctoral and Master’s degrees magna cum laude in Materials Science with a PhD thesis about magnetoelectric composites. Winner of Quality Research Awards 2015 and 2016 by SCUDO. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Francesco Miccio is a Chemical engineer, Research Director at CNR, Contract Professor in Chemical Engineering at University of Bologna, project coordinator in the past of EC funded projects, with interest in thermochemical processes for energy and chemicals, also using functionalized ceramics. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.Sc in Physics and Ph.D. in Chemistry, Simone Sprio is Director of Research at ISSMC-CNR. With more than 25 years of experience at ISSMC-CNR, his main expertise is in the design and development of biomimetic, bioactive calcium phosphates and apatite-based biomaterials for bone tissue regeneration and for nanomedicine, such as ion-doped hydroxyapatite nanoparticles, scaffolds and self-hardening pastes/cements featuring enhanced cell-instructing properties and intrinsic antibacterial properties. Specific focus on ceramic science and technology, sintering processes, biomorphic transformations, solid state chemical reactions.
