Valeria Panzetta is Assistant professor at the Department of Chemical, Materials and IndustrialProduction Engineering of the University of Naples Federico II. She has over 10 years of experienceat academic and research institutions in developing experimental tools to study cell mechanics and to understand cellular mechanotransduction processes, by which cells detect and recognize different mechanical cues, in physiological and pathological conditions. Her scientific team has established a novel and proprietary tissue engineering technology to build up homotypic and heterotypic physiopathological 3D human tissues in vitro exhibiting functional, structural, and histological features closely resembling their native counterparts. She is now engaged in defining novel strategies for the
fabrication of in vitro biological tissues through the administration of dynamic biophysical signals.
