About

Laura Russo’s research experience dates back to 2009, at University of Milano-Bicocca as PhD student on a multidisciplinary project exploiting glycoscience in the field of nanomaterials for tissue engineering. In 2010 Dr. Laura Russo joined the research group of Prof. Julian R. Jones, at Imperial College of London, as Visiting Academic, working on the design and synthesis of hybrid biomaterials for tissue regeneration. From 2013 she worked as Post Doc Fellow at University of Milano – Bicocca on nano- and biomaterials functionalisation using a wide range of materials (organic, inorganic, polymeric, natural and synthetic), and on the synthesis of smart functionalized hydrogel for 3D culture. Dr Russo has also expertise in manipulating complex biomolecules such as carbohydrates. In July 2016 Dr. Russo awarded a SFI Starting Investigator Research Grant (SIRG) to perform her research on “Glyco-functionalized hydrogels and biomaterials for tissue engineering applications” as Principal Investigator at the National University of Ireland in Galway.
