Prof. Dr. Ilaria Cacciotti is Full Professor of Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering and Materials Science and Technology at University of Rome "Niccolò Cusano", with consolidated expertise in the synthesis and characterization of (bio)materials and eco-sustainable systems. She graduated in Medical Engineering at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (Master of Science Award ‘Fondazione Raeli’). Afterwards, she completed the Ph.D in Materials Engineering (Ph.D Thesis Award ‘Marco Ramoni 2011, Ph.D Thesis AIMAT Award 2012) and she obtained the II Level Master degrees in “Forensic Genetics” and in "Protection against CBRNe events". She is expert in the synthesis, processing and characterisation of biocompatible nanostructured materials, particularly for applications in the biomedical, environmental and agri-food sectors, including bioceramics (undoped and doped calcium phosphates, bioactive glasses), biopolymers and composites. She is reviewer for more than 100 peer-review journals, e.g. Acta Biomaterialia, Biofabrication, Chemical Engineering Journal, has been/is Guest Editor of several Special issues, and is a member of the Editorial Board of several international journals, including Applied Science-MDPI, Applied Surface Science Advances-Elsevier, Frontiers in Biomaterials, Open Journal of Materials Science-Bentham Science, Recent Patents on Materials Science-Bentham Science, The Open Materials Science Journal-Bentham Open, Reviews on Advanced Materials Science-DE GRUYTER OPEN, and serves on various grant review committees, such as National Science Foundation (NSF), Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and National Science Center (NCN, NARODOWE CENTRUM NAUKI).
