New grants

The lab was fortunate to secure new funding for collaborative projects:

  • Together with Prof. Priori at UNIPV/CNIC, we will develop engineered heart-chips for testing RNA-therapeutics in the context of the EU/PNRR-funded National Center for Gene Therapy and RNA-based medicine.
  • Together with Prof. Rizzello at UNIMI, we will develop a tuberculosis on-a-chip model to study the mechanobiology of senescent macrophages.
