On the twelfth day of STEMmas… Dr Serena Danti

Our twelfth and final notable woman in STEM is Dr Serena Danti, who has worked on 3D printing new ear drums.

Serena has worked on “developing biomimetic tissue-engineered substitutes, using fabrication techniques acting at different scale levels to overcome the drawbacks of current prostheses, such as extrusion or suboptimal performance”. She also worked on research testing two different techniques to create copolymer scaffolds, similar in size to natural eardrums and “designed to host cellular growth”.
