Luiz Bertassoni's Biography

Luiz Bertassoni, Assistant Professor, Oregon Health and Science University/The University of Sydney

Dr. Luiz E. Bertassoni graduated with a PhD in Biomaterials from University of Sydney in Australia, and with postdoctoral degrees from University of California San Francisco, Harvard Medical School and MIT. Currently, Dr. Bertassoni is an Assistant Professor at Oregon Health and Science University, and holds an honorary appointment in Biomaterials and Bioengineering at University of Sydney. Dr. Bertassoni leads a multidisciplinary research group working on various aspects of biomaterials and tissue engineering. His work has appeared in journals such as Advanced Materials, Lab on a chip, Acta Biomaterialia, Biofabrication and many others. His recent work on bioprinting of blood vessels and vascularized tissues have received extensive attention in the popular media and in 2014 it was selected as one of the 100 most important scientific discoveries of the year by Discover Magazine. Luiz is a recipient of over 20 national and international research awards and 8 competitive research grants. He currently serves as an ad-hoc reviewer or editorial board member for over 20 journals and is also an invited editor for a book on engineering of mineralized tissues. Dr. Bertassoni's research addresses microscale strategies for tissue engineering; micro-and nanoscale structural and mechanical properties of mineralized tissues; and different aspects of microfluidics and ‘organs-on-a-chip’.
