Thomas Di Mattia

Research Staff Scientist
MRI EPFL Animal Imaging and Technology Section

I obtained my Master degree in biology in 2015 and my Ph.D. degree in life Sciences in 2019 from the University of Strasbourg (France). I focused my thesis work in better understanding the dynamics of cellular organelles. I functionally characterized a new protein – pathologically-associated to breast cancer – involved in organelle-organelle physical connection. Then, in 2020, I moved to the University of Geneva as postdoc, where I worked in cell-cell junction biology.
In 2021, I had the opportunity to join EPFL as a research staff scientist on a collaborative Innosuisse grant with the start-up Volumina Medical, which is developing a highly innovative injectable biomaterials for regenerative medicine. In this context, the cutting-edge knowledge of CIBM in medical imaging will be an asset for the validation of the performance of implants in tissue regeneration and volume monitoring.
