Secretary: Roberto Narcisi
Roberto Narcisi graduated (with honor) in Medical Biotechnology in 2007 and completed his PhD in Biotechnology and Tissue Engineering in 2011 (University of Genova, Italy), where he mainly investigated the effect of TGFβ during chondrocyte expansion. Subsequently, Roberto started as junior postdoc in the group of Prof. Gerjo van Osch (Erasmus MC, Rotterdam) to study the regulation of chondrogenesis in mesenchymal stem cells. Currently, Roberto is senior scientist at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam (Orthopaedic department) supported by a VENI/STW grant, a ZonMW/TAS grant, Reumafonds grant (serendipity call) and an Erasmus MC internal grant, working towards the use of growth factor-free systems for chondrogenesis from adult stem cells. In 2017 he won the Dutch FameLab event, a worldwide science communication competition for young scientist.
