Assoc Prof Mikaël Martino, PhD
Group Leader, EMBL Australia Partner Laboratory,
Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University
Mikaël Martino obtained his PhD in Biotechnology and Bioengineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), in 2011. During his PhD thesis, he
principally focused on how the extracellular matrix regulates the activities of growth factors. Notably, he developed novel growth factor delivery systems that are currently in clinical development for regenerative medicine applications such as chronic wounds and bone regeneration. Then, he received fellowships from the Swiss National Science foundation to perform research in Immunology at Osaka University (Japan) where he concentrated on how the innate immune system influences tissue regeneration. Pursuing research at the interface between immunity and regenerative medicine, he became Assistant Professor in Osaka University in 2015. In 2016 Mikaël became an EMBL Australia group leader at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute in Monash University. His long-term goal is to work at the interface between bioengineering and immunology for designing efficient regenerative medicine strategies.
