mainaAndrea Mainardi was born in 1992. He obtained the Bachelor degree in biomedical engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2014, with a thesis aimed at characterizing an alginate based hydrogel employed for drug release following abdominal surgery. In April 2017, he received his master degree in Biomedical engineering from Politecnico di Milano. His master thesis focused on developing a microfluidic system to provide engineered cartilage micro-constructs with defined levels of confined compression and was carried on in collaboration with the University Hospital of Basel. After graduation, he worked as a guest Scientist at the University hospital of Basel, aiming at creating an in vitro platform for mimicking osteoarthritis. Currently he is a PhD candidate in the framework of a Cotutelles de Thèse between Politecnico di Milano and The University Hospital of Basel, his work focusing on the generation of microfluidic platforms for the recapitulation of organs function.
