Projects per year
Michele Zagnoni's research is based on the development of new microsystems for basic biology investigation, diagnosis and treatment of disease using microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip technologies. More information on: www.zagnonilab.com
We use microfluidics for the development of screening and diagnostic systems for healthcare applications, including fundamental biological research, drug screening and personalized medicine therapy, for the creation of organ-on-a-chip in vitro models and for synthetic biology applications.
