Dr. Alessandro Simi obtained his BSc and MSc in Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnologies at the University of Genova and his PhD in Neuroscience and Brain Technologies at UniGe - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia of Genova, under the coordination of Dr. Luca Berdondini, P.I. of the Microtechnology for Neuroelectronics lab, working on the characterization of neuronal networks activity and primary neural stem cells integration using in-vitro high-resolution microelectrode arrays. He moved to Lausanne (Switzerland) in Dr Mehdi Tafti’s group at the Center of Integrative Genomics (CIG) where he took part in the “Sleep-in-a-dish” research project studying sleep-like behavior in neuronal cortical cultures. Before joining the MINDED programme, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in M. Studer’s lab at Institut de Biologie Valrose in Nice (France), where he investigated the role of transcription factors in cortical development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
