Main Research Topics:

  • Skin tissue engineering
  • in vitro 3D tissue and skin diseases models
  • Hair follicle
  • Adipose tissue
  • Bioprinting

Integration of stem cells and biomaterials knowledge into tissue engineering as a way to define innovative strategies to improve skin wound healing. The establishment of in vitro 3D culture platforms (skin, hair follicle, adipose tissue) to understand cellular crosstalk, as well as to be able to modulate the mode of action of the developed strategies, has been the focus of her work. Mimicking tissue’s native extracellular matrix (ECM) by exploring cell-sheet engineering technology and innovative hydrogel-like matrices has been contributing to address those goals.
