Alice Zoso graduated in Industrial Biotechnology in 2010 and obtained her PhD in Bioscience and Biotechnology in 2014 at the University of Padova (Italy). Here, she worked on the development of an in vitro model of skeletal muscle on hydrogel for Duchenne Dystrophy investigation and on the integration of human tissues in a microfluidic technology for physio-pathological studies on Type 2 Diabetes. After receiving her PhD, she worked as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), studying first the crosstalk between human skeletal muscle and pancreatic beta-cells in Type 2 Diabetes and later on, the mechanisms of uncontrolled airway epithelium repair in Cystic Fibrosis.

Currently, she is a post-doc at the Polytechnic of Torino where she focuses on the development and biological characterization of the 3D in vitro model of fibrotic cardiac tissue within the BIORECAR project.

During these years, she published 15 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and 1 book chapter and presented her work at several national and international congresses.
