Flavio Lorenzo Ronzoni

Assistant Professor

Human Anatomy

Dr. Flavio L. Ronzoni graduated in 2008 in Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology at the University of Pavia with a project focused on the study and characterization of a transgenic mouse model of muscle hypertrophy. In 2012 Dr. Ronzoni obtained the multidisciplinary PhD in Bioengineering and Bioinformatics at the University of Pavia, studying the gene expression profile in genetically induced muscle hypertrophy. During this period, he developed his interests in Regenerative Medicine working at the Stem Cell Institute of the Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven in Belgium.

After the PhD, Dr. Ronzoni moved as Boursieur d’Excellence to the Pluripotent Stem Cell Laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Geneva.

Here he carried out his scientific activity in the field of Embryonic, Fetal and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (IPSc) studying their musculoskeletal and cardiac differentiation potentials.

Dr. Ronzoni also obtained the GMP/GLP certification in advanced stem cell production and banking for cell therapies released by the Hôpital Universitaire de Genève (HUG).

His scientific papers published in international journals focus on Skeletal and Cardiac Muscle Regeneration. He collaborated with national (Prin, Firb, INAIL, Cariplo) and international research groups supported by European Grants (SNF, FSRMM). These important collaborations enabled him to enrich his curriculum with publications on high-impact journals such as Stem Cell Translational Medicine, Journal of Molecular Theraphy, Stem Cells and Journal of Cell Biology.

He is member of the Italian Society of Anatomy and Histology (SIAI) and he was awarded in 2017 for his scientific activity.

In 2020 Dr. Ronzoni joined Humanitas University as Researcher (RTDA) in Human Anatomy.

Teaching activity

Dr. Ronzoni is currently a lecturer at Humanitas University teaching Regional Anatomy and Gross Neuroanatomy at MEDTEC School double degree.

Previously, Dr. Ronzoni gave classes in Human Anatomy for Medicine and Surgery (Harvey Course), Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (Bachelor and Master degree) and Sport Science courses at the University of Pavia. He also held seminars and workshops in the field of stem cells and their therapeutic applications.
