Luca Berdondini is a Senior Researcher (with tenure) at the Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Genova, Italy) where he leads the IIT-NetS3 laboratory. By converging cross-disciplinary engineering and neuroscience competences, including chip fabrication and bio-electrochemical sensor arrays, microelectronics and computational development, his research team focuses on the study and application of innovative neuroelectronic solutions for interfacing neural networks and brain circuits at cellular resolution. Luca Berdondini received in 1999 a M.Sc. degree in microengineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) with a Master Thesis at Caltech (USA) and in 2003 a PhD on nano-/micro-fabricated interfaces and CMOS devices for electrophysiology (SAMLAB, now part of EPFL). He joined IIT in 2007 and he got a tenured position in 2018. He is among the pioneers of CMOS-based multielectrode arrays for electrophysiology, co-founder of 3Brain AG (Zurich, Switzerland) and he has contributed to >70 publications and patents.
