We are pleased to announce that our CompMech Group member, Dr. Giulia Scalet, was awarded a Starting Grant by the European Research Council for her project CoDe4Bio (COmputational DEsign for 4D BIOfabrication: harnessing programmable materials for dynamic pre-clinical cancer models).
Dr. Giulia Scalet is Assistant Professor of Solids and Structural Mechanics, within the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the University of Pavia, and member of the Computational Mechanics & Advanced Materials Group.
With CoDe4Bio Dr Scalet will study the relationships between the behavior of cancer cells, dynamic physical stimulation, and drug resistance, to progress towards effective cancer cures. The grant is awarded for a five-year period and the budget is about 1.5 million Euros.
