Diego Di Bernardo Diego di Bernardo was awarded a “Laurea cum laude” Degree in Electronic Engineering (5 yrs. University study, equivalent to M.Sc.) in January 1997 In 2001, thanks to a 3-year European Commission “Marie Curie” Individual Fellowship, he obtained the Ph.D. degree from the School of Medicine of the University of Newcastle, UK, under the supervision of Prof. Alan Murray. His Ph.D. thesis described a novel computational model of the electrocardiographic T wave. Until May 2002, he was a PostDoc in the lab of Dr Tim Hubbard at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Center (UK). From June 2002 to December 2002 he was a PostDoc in Prof. Jim Collins’ lab at the Department of Biomedical Engineering in Boston University. Since January 2003, he is a Group Leader at TIGEM (Italy). In December 2007, he became Assistant Professor (“Ricercatore”) at the University “Federico II” of Naples, and in November 2015 he became Associate Professor in the Dept. of Chemical, Materials and Industrial Production Engineering. His research interests are in Systems and Synthetic Biology. He is author of more than 90 publications in peer reviewed journals.
