Professor of Biomechanics, Politecnico di Milano
Gabriele Dubini received his master degree (MSc) in Mechanical Engineering cum laude in 1988 and his PhD degree in Bioengineering in 1993 from Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy.
In 1993 and 1994 he worked as a Research Assistant in the Cardiothoracic Unit of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children - NHS Trust, London, UK. An Assistant Professor of Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer since 1996, he was then appointed Associate Professor (2001) and Full Professor (2007) of Bioengineering at Politecnico di Milano.
At Politecnico di Milano he was the Director of the Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics – LaBS (2003-07) and a member of the Scientific Panel of the Coordination Centre on NanoBiotechnologies and Nanomedicine (2007-12). From 2008 to 2012 he was a member of the Council of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) and the Secretary-General for the 2010-12 biennium. In 2017 he was appointed the Deputy Director of the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering ‘Giulio Natta’.
Most of Gabriele Dubini’s research activity has dealt with experimental and computational Biomechanics. His research has covered a number of topics, such as microcirculation, the hemodynamic optimization of blood circulation after pediatric cardiac surgery procedures, heat and mass transfer in tissues and medical devices, preoperative planning of minimally invasive vascular procedures. His most recent research interests are in the field of microfluidic devices for medical and biotechnological applications. WP Leader and PI in a number of European, international and national research projects, he has co-authored more than 150 papers (WoS h index of 37, as of June 2019).
