Dr Tiziano Serra is a materials engineer from Lecce (Italy), received a PhD (cum laude) at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (Spain, 2014) with a thesis on the development of bioactive composite scaffolds by 3-D printing for bone tissue engineering. He was postdoctoral fellow at University College London (UCL) working on design and development of 3-D printed patient specific medical devices.
For his expertise in biomaterials and biofabrication, Tiziano was the recipient of ISBF Young Investigator Award from the International Society of Biofabrication (2018), BRIDGE Fellowhip from SNSF-Innosuisse (2017), Premi Extraordinari de Doctorat from the Technical University of Catalonia (2016), and Julia Polak European Doctoral Award from European Society of Biomaterials (2015).
Tiziano is member of the Steering committee of ITN MSCA Premurosa project "Precision medicine for musculoskeletal regeneration, prosthetics, and active ageing", the FLAMIN-GO project, "From pathobiology to synovia on chip: driving rheumatoid arthritis to the precision medicine goal", and the STRATAGEM New diagnostic and therapeutic tools against multidrug resistant tumours.
