Francesca Giacomini

PhD Student

Regenerating the soft tissue-to-bone interface

Francesca received her Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology and her Master’s degree in Medical Biotechnology at the University of Trieste, Italy. During her master, she moved to Germany and started to work at the Department of Experimental Orofacial Medicine at the Philipps University of Marburg, where she focused on calcium alkali phosphate-based biomaterials for bone regeneration and bone tissue engineering applications.

In February 2018 Francesca joined the IBE and CTR departments of MERLN. The main goal of her project is to obtain a deeper understanding of soft tissue-to-bone interfaces and to develop a biomaterials-based strategy to guide and sustain the regeneration of these complex microscale interfaces.
