The information published in this page are entirely managed by ALFONSO MASTROPIETRO who is completely responsible for it.

Ph.D. in Bioengineering, he works as a researcher at ITB-CNR since 2019. He received his Bachelor's Degree in 2007 and his Master's Degree in 2009 in Biomedical Engineer from Politecnico di Milano. In 2013 he obtained his European Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Politecnico di Milano defending a thesis entitled: "19F MRI and Molecular Imaging: Optimization and Application in Multimodal In-Vivo Brain Cell-Tracking".

From 2009 to 2015 he carried out his research activities at the Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta of Milano, where he worked on preclinical in-vivo/ex-vivo studies using high-field MRI (7T) on animal models of neurologic pathologies. He worked also on molecular imaging using fluorine compounds for cellular tracking by MRI. Between 2012 and 2013 he had research experience at the in-vivo NMR laboratory of the Max Planck Institute for Neurological Research in Cologne (Germany), where he worked on multimodal imaging (19F MRI, bioluminescence, optical microscopy) for the tracking of neuronal stem cells in preclinical studies.

From 2015 to 2019 he worked at the Institute of Bioimages and Molecular Physiology (IBFM-CNR), first as research fellow and then as a researcher, focusing his activities on the development and application of biomedical image processing and analysis methods, with a particular attention to the MRI analysis for the extraction of quantitative indices through advanced techniques, such as DTI, IVIM, DIXON, Relaxometry and Tractography for cerebral and muscular tissue. In addition, he worked on the analysis of EEG signals for the evaluation of the effects of motor rehabilitation in subjects affected by stroke.

He attended different national and international scientific conferences and was involved in relevant research projects. He's author/co-author of various scientific publication on international peer-reviewed journals.
