Research Activity

Andrea Bagno is Associate Professor of Industrial Bioengineering at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Padova. After the degree in Chemical Engineering (1991), he had the PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1995. Research interests focused on the interaction between biomaterials and biological tissue, and on biomaterial surface treatment and characterization. Other research activities concern: the biomechanical characterization of native and decellularized pericardium for the production of blood-contacting surfaces; the development of vascular and urological substitutes; the early detection of mechanical heart valves failure by phonocardiographic means; the assessment of skin microcirculation by means of Laser Doppler Fluxmetry.
