Mario Marini graduated in physics in 2018 at the Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca and is currently a PhD candidate at the Physics Department of the same University. MM’s research activity is centered on the development of optical microscopy techniques for the study of complex biological systems. Specifically, in the context of photo-activated thermal imaging, MM has been responsible for the development of a novel super-resolution imaging method aimed at the high resolution spatial mapping of the sample temperature and thermal properties. In parallel, MM has exploited multiphoton fabrication to develop and design photo-thermally active laser-written proteinaceous microstructures to be used as platforms for cell growth and stimulation.
MB graduated in Physics at Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca (Milano, Italy) in 2012. After receiving the Ph.D. in Physics in Milan in 2015, MB performed postdoctoral research on fluorescence-based single cell sorting at the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics (LFD, University of California – Irvine, USA), and is currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Physics Department of Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca.
MB’s research activity is centered on the development of instrumentation and data-processing methods in optical (fluorescence and photo-thermal) microscopy aimed at the study of complex biological systems by experimental, simulative and theoretical approaches. A major interest involves the investigation of diffusive, active and anomalous transport from the sub-cellular level up to the spatial scale of microcirculatory vessel networks by the principles of particle tracking and correlation spectroscopy.
The cytocompatibility of the biomaterial in vitro and the immunogenicity in vivo are tested in general following these lines of actions.
• Cytocompatibility in vitro is tested on immortalized cell lines, using metabolic assays and imaging and looking how cells differentiate in the presence of the materials.• In vivo immunogenic evaluations track cellular viability and activation. For viability, the morphology and number of immune cells populating the biomaterial surface is checked with staining protocols and/or by metabolic assays. Cell activation tests detect pro- and anti-inflammation cell surface markers through immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence or FACS.
However, in vitro tests lack a full inflammatory environment and in vivo tests are ethically undesirable.
The project IN2SIGHT aims to renovate the methods for the validation of biomaterials by improving and renovating the statistical methods to analyse the data on the immune response and dramatically reduce the ethical impact of the research.

They form 3 transversal working units with unique knowledge and skills in
The capability of synergy between all partners is proved by existing common publications, European projects (ENCITE, NICHOID) and academic agreements for R&D between partners. The R&D success is based on correlated and sequential actions between all the partners from the in vitro validation of the device to the in vivo implementation of the new regulation protocols.
