Laura Russo is Associate Professor at University of Milano-Bicocca, Visiting Faculty at CÚRAM and Adjunct Lecturer at University of Galway. Her research is focused on biomaterials for the development of multifunctional medical devices, including 3D in vitro tissue models, regenerative medicine devices and patient-personalized biosensors. Her research experience dates to 2010, as a PhD student in the BioOrganic research group of the University of Milano-Bicocca, developing a multidisciplinary project exploiting glycoscience in the field of biomaterials for tissue engineering. 

From 2013 to 2015, as Post-doctoral Fellow, at University of Milano-Bicocca, she was a unit coordinator of a research project on smart biomaterials for organoid cell cultures for cardiac tissue engineering. In October 2016, Laura was awarded an SFI Starting Investigator Research Grant (SIRG) at CÚRAM, University of Galway – where she started her research as Principal Investigator on Glycoconjugates Biomaterials for tissue engineering applications.  In March 2017, she secured a faculty position at the University of Milano – Bicocca and maintained the position of visiting faculty at CÚRAM. Laura has been awarded the prestigious Junior Research Award for Organic Chemistry in Life Science of the Italian Chemical Society for her scientific contribution on organic chemistry applied to the life science field. Since 2022, Laura is Associate Professor at University of Milano-Bicocca, a Member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Biocompatibility Innovation (BCI) and founder of Resyde srl – a start-up company in the field of implantable medical devices.
