Digital lectures: Gianni Ciofani (28 March 2024)


Join us for the upcoming EUROoCS digital meeting on March 28th, where we will delve into the fascinating realm of biomimetic barriers-on-a-chip for modeling the brain cancer microenvironment. Our esteemed speaker, Dr. Gianni Ciofani, will guide us through this innovative approach, shedding light on its potential applications and implications.

Speaker: Gianni Ciofani, Ph.D.
Subject: Biomimetic barriers-on-a-chip for the modeling of the brain cancer microenvironment
Date: March 28th
Time: 17:00-18:00 CET

Gianni Ciofani, Ph.D., is Research Director at the Italian Institute of Technology, where he is Principal Investigator of the Smart Bio-Interfaces Research Line and Coordinator of the Center for Materials Interfaces (Pontedera, Italy). His main research interests concern smart nanomaterials for nanomedicine, complex in vitro models, and nanomedicine in altered gravity conditions. He author of about 180 papers on international journals, and coordinator or unit leader of several projects: in particular, he was awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant and three ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant in 2016, 2018, 2022, and 2023, respectively. Thanks to grants from the Italian Space Agency and the European Space Agency, he had the opportunity to carry out experiments onboard the International Space Station in 2017, 2019, 2022, and 2024.
