Dr Pellegata had his PhD in bioengineering at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in the group of Professor Mantero in 2014 working on blood vessels tissue engineering. From 2015 until 2019, he worked as postdoctoral scientist at the UCL GOS Institute of Child Health (London, UK) position in Professor De Coppi’s group.
His research interests were focused on regenerative medicine and on the biology of endothelial cells and pericytes. In particular, he worked on whole organ and organoid models for tissue engineering and personalised medicine. From mid-2019 until 2020 he worked as Senior Postdoc at the Centre for Nanoscience and Technology at the Italian Institute of Technology.
His research was focused on the use of innovative techniques in regenerative medicine, in particular for the regeneration and engineering of the heart and the vasculature. In February 2021 he was appointed at Politecnico di Milano (Italy). His current research interest are regenerative medicine and the development of vascularised organoid based models for personalised medicine.
