Centro di Ricerca "E.Piaggio" - Università di Pisa
Roberta received her master degree in Biomedical Engineering at Politecnico of Milan in 2015. In 2016 she joined the PhD program of the Information Engineering Department (University of Pisa), working at the "E. Piaggio Research Centre". Her research is mainly focused on engineering a dynamic model of the alveolar barrier and on the integration of sensors in this system for real-time monitoring of cell culture. The system consists of an air-liquid interface bioreactor able to reproduce lung muscle stretching, allowing the study of interaction between inhaled particles and lung epithelial cells.
