LABS – Bassani, Tito


Director: Dr. Fabio Galbusera



Tito Bassani received the Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineer in 2007 and the Doctoral degree (PhD) in Bioengineering in 2012, both from Politecnico di Milano. Since 2014 he is senior scientist in the Laboratory of Biological Structures Mechanics at IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi, where he supervises and takes part in several clinical research projects. He is experienced in the development of advanced algorithms for biomedical signal processing and in musculoskeletal modeling techniques mainly applied to the characterization of the human spine.
