Dr. Dimartino is a Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Bioengineering at the University of Edinburgh, UK. He received his PhD from the University of Bologna (Italy, 2009) followed by a PostDoc at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand).
He has been always working on the development of new stationary phases for chromatography, spanning from membranes to monoliths to fibre-based media. He now employs 3D printing methods for the fabrication of chromatography media with perfectly ordered morphology, with specific focus on the design of novel three-dimensional lattices and the development of materials compatible with both 3D printers and chromatographic operations. Dr. Dimartino’s research group is currently transferring methods developed in chromatography to other relevant operations in the biotechnology industry (e.g. biocatalysis and bioreactors) and in chemical engineering (CO2 capture).
The novelty and quality of this research has been recognised with a number of international awards, including 3 best poster awards in 3 continuous years at the PREP conference series, and the Csaba Horvath Young Scientist Award at HPLC 2016.
The World Advanced Therapies and Regenerative Medicine Congress and Exhibition is an international conference and exhibition featuring the latest in advanced therapies, bioengineering and surrounding technology. To attend the conference which features global leaders in the biopharma and regenerative medicine industries, there is a registration fee. The exhibition is free to visit.
