Francesca Perin

Visiting Scientist

Versatile multi-component (bio)ink platform for advanced biofabrication

Francesca holds a Bachelor in Industrial Engineering and a Master in Materials and Production Engineering, both from University of Trento. In her Bachelor thesis, she worked on 3D printing, while during the Master she discovered her interest for biomedical applications of materials engineering with a thesis on oxygen generating microparticles to prevent hypoxia in scaffolds. In 2019, she begun her PhD at BioTech (University of Trento) under the supervision of prof Antonella Motta and Devid Maniglio. In her PhD project, she brings together her interest for 3D printing, tissue engineering and biopolymers, by working on the engineering of versatile bioinks. Currently, bioprinting is emerging as an ever-growing technology for biomedical research, however, it still presents many challenges regarding the engineering and testing of suitable materials. Francesca’s project aims at developing versatile inks with multiple applications, with the hope to speed up translation from the lab to real life applications. In june 2022 she moved to MERLN to finish her PhD under the cotutelle of Dr Carlos Mota and to join the BIRDIE project team.
