soncini Monica Soncini has a Master degree in Electronic Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (1996) and has obtained a PhD degree in Bioengineering (2001) on dental implants biomechanics. She is currently working as Assistant Professor at the Politecnico di Milano.
Her main research activities are in the field of biomechanics at the molecular level (cytoskeleton and amyloid proteins) and in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In the field of molecular biomechanics/biophysics she was involved into two European projects (FP6) focused on active biomimetic systems (STREP2004 and MarieCurieEST2004). In the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine she was involved in several research projects with the aim of developing culture systems for aortic homograft recellularisation, cardiac tissue regeneration (PRIN2006, CARIPLO2008), pericardium and bladder decellularization, urinary bladder regeneration (PRIN2008, as Unit PI), perfusion systems for stem cells expansion (CARIPLO2006, MIUR: grant for one PhD position), and ex vivo culture systems for the analysis of cellular mechanisms at the base of saphenous vein graft arterialization (RF-GR-2011 as Unit PI).
Lecturer of the courses of Cellular Mechanics and Tissue Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino (2003-04, 2004-05) and of Molecular Biomechanics (2004-05) and Cellular Bioengineering (from 2005-06) at the Politecnico di Milano.
Author of more than 150 publications (46 peer reviewed international papers).
Member of the Bioengineering PhD School Committee, Politecnico di Milano since 2011. Supervisor of 7 PhD students. Member of the Scientific Committee of the “II National Congress of Bioengineering”, Torino, Italy, 8-10 July 2010.
Co-Chair of the Molecular-Level Biomechanics Track of the 7th World Congress of Biomechanics, Boston 6-11 July 2014, organized by Roger Kamm and Jay Humphrey.
Co-Chair of the Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials Theme of the 37th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), to be held in Milan 25-29 August 2015, organized by Sergio Cerutti, Paolo Bonato, Nigel Lovell and Luca Mainardi.
Academic Editor of the international journal PLosOne.
