Irina Mancini
Irina is passionate about her scientific work and wants to share her work experience with the most diverse audiences. Starting as a veterinary doctor in 2012, she first wanted to communicate to pet owners the science of diseases and therapies, with particular attention to osteoarthritis, pain management and quality of life in animals. When she moved from clinical work to research in 2014, as a PhD researcher she discovered the wonders of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, but found it hard sometimes to understand the science behind scientific articles. She currently dedicates herself to the translation of promising biomaterials for cartilage repair from in vitro to preclinical large animal models, while working towards making science always understandable to her different audiences.
