Dr Pierre-Olivier Bagnaninchi is a principal investigator and senior lecturer at the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (CMVM), at the University of Edinburgh (UoE).
Pierre-Olivier studied theoretical physics (MSc, 97) before moving to the field of biomedical engineering. He obtained his PhD in biomedical engineering in 2001 from the University of Grenoble, France in partnership with Thales optoelectronics to develop optical biosensors. He then joined Prof. Maryam Tabrizian’s lab at McGill University to develop impedance-based biosensors for tissue engineering applications. In 2004, he joined the Institute of Science and Technology for Medicine at Keele University (UK) under the supervision of Prof. Alicia El Haj and Professor Ruikang Wang to develop a polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography system. In 2008 he was awarded a 5-year RCUK fellowship at the University of Edinburgh to develop as an independent researcher novel label-free technologies for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Pierre Bagnaninchi is a member of EPSRC, BBSRC and MRC funded Organ on a chip technologies network (www.organonachip.org.uk), for which he leads a Special interest group: Label-free real-time monitoring, translation to organ on a chip.
