Cristiana Mattei is a third year-PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne where she investigates 3D cell culture systems for the in vitro derivation of neural-like tissue from human Pluripotent Stem Cells as in vitro models of neural diseases. She graduated with her Master’s degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2012. Stem cells and in vitro modelling have been her main areas of interest over the last eight years.
