Alexandre Morel’s research interests are focused on applied tissue engineering to be highly interdisciplinary. He gained expertise in bio-microfluidics and cell culture working on the development of a cyclically-stretchable 3D-vascular network during his Master’s thesis in ARTORG center in Bern (Switzerland). He worked on the development of a 3D-kidney model using bioprinting technologies during an internship at the University of Applied Sciences in Wädenswil (Switzerland). In addition to bio-microfluidics and bioprinting, expertise in electrospinning enables him to tackle tissue development with suitable solutions. During his PhD thesis, he acquired abilities to investigate mechanical aspects at different scale levels and could deepen his knowledge in mechanobiology. These new skills help to design scaffolds with appropriate mechanical properties for tissue engineering application.
