Filippo is Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering “Giulio Natta” at Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy). He received Master Degree in Chemical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, in December 2007, with an experimental thesis on formulated hydrogels able to probe and direct cell fate. In February 2011 he received Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano with an experimental thesis on polymeric devices able to control and sustain the release of cells and drugs in spinal cord injury treatment. He also spend research period in 2009 as visiting Ph.D. student at Imperial College London (Prof. Boccaccini group), in 2012 as Post-Doc at Uppsala University (Prof. Hilborn group) and in 2018 as Visiting Professor at Keio University. From November 2019 he is working as Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano in the framework of Applied Physical Chemistry and as Guest Researcher at Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri. His main research interests are in the field of innovative polymer materials for nanomedicine, drug delivery and tissue engineering with experimental and model studies. For his research activities I have been awarded with several international prizes and Fellowship by Global Young Academy. The results of his research were also featured in Chemical & Engineering News. He also contributed with several invited communications to international conferences. He serves as Reviewer for about 40 international journals and he has served as Young Editor for Tissue Engineering Parts A, B & C (Mary Ann Liebert). He is now serving as Editorial Board Member for Advances in Polymer Technology (Wiley), Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (Bentham Science), Gels (MDPI) and Sci (MDPI).
