Dr Rodrigo Curvello
Rodrigo is a postdoctoral researcher at the Loesser Group at Monash University. He completed his PhD investigating new concepts of nanocellulose hydrogels for biomedical applications at Monash University in 2020. In his current project, Rodrigo will be developing a three-dimensional microenvironment to grow human ‘mini-tumours’ named spheroids. The idea is to engineer the cancer microenvironment to understand how tumours are originated and then to support the research for new therapies.
