Gabriele Maria Fortunato

Gabriele Maria Fortunato is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering and fellow of the Research Center “E. Piaggio”, University of Pisa. He received his PhD in Information Engineering at the University of Pisa in 2022, working on the development of a robotic biofabrication platform for in situ bioprinting applications. In particular, he analysed the advantages and limitations of this innovative technology against traditional tissue engineering approaches, developing a standardised in situ bioprinting workflow. The proposed approach was tested on different patient-specific phantoms, purposely designed.

At the present, he is still investigating the potential of the in situ bioprinting technology. Another main topic of his research is additive manufacturing techniques and their combination (extrusion-based 3D printing, ink-jet printing, electrospinning) to fabricate multiscale and multimaterial scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. He is also involved in the development of open-source medical devices. He contributed to the development of several devices within the European project UBORA (GA 731053, 2017-2019) and in this context he also participated to the design school held in Nairobi (Kenya) in December 2017.
