Simone Perottoni

Simone is a post-doctoral research fellow. He earned his M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering with a specialization on cells and tissue engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2019. His journey into the field of advanced tissues/organs in vitro modeling began during an internship at the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) in 2019. In 2023, he successfully completed his Ph.D. in Bioengineering, specializing in multi-organ microphysiological systems for modeling neurodegeneration and microbiota-brain communication. Simone is actively contributing to the ERC-CoG-2016 project “MINERVA” at the TechnoBiology Laboratories. Specifically, his responsibilities encompass the technological and engineering advancements of the MINERVA platform.


Riccardo Tripputi

Riccardo is a Ph.D. student. He earned his M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 2023, where his thesis focused on developing a computational model to characterize retinal biomechanics. Since February 2024, he has been pursuing a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, concentrating on the development and characterization of engineered in vitro miniaturized physiopathological models.
