About Pierre-Alexandre LAURENT

Dr. Laurent is currently senior field application specialist at CELLINK to promote and share all the possibilities offered by revolutionary 3D bioprinting solutions. During his Ph.D. he worked on the role of PI3Ks on the platelet functions and thrombus formation using in-vivo approach, microfluidic and microscopy technics. He continued with 4 years of postdoc at the University of Pavia (Italy) in the Balduini lab. His main project, based on 3D bone marrow models for the study of thrombocytopenia, led to the development of bioreactor for ex-vivo platelet production and drug testing purposes, using silk fibroin biomaterial and 3D bioprinting approach. Moreover, his research takes part in the European project SilkFUSION (H2020) that have for primary goal to engineer groundbreaking 3D nanotechnologies for large-scale production of blood platelets for human transfusion from human pluripotent stem cells. CELLINK is a consortium partner of the SilkFUSION project coordinated by Pr. Balduini lab in University of Pavia.
