Curriculum vitae

Professor  Adriana Bigi is Full Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Bologna, where previously she covered the positions of Researcher, and  of Associate Professor since 1992.

At present, Prof. Bigi teaches Chemistry for the Bachelor Course of Geological Science and Structural Chemistry for the Bachelor Course of Chemistry and Chemistry of Materials.

Prof. Adriana Bigi carries out her research activity at the Department of Chemistry “Ciamician”, where she coordinates the Biomimetics and Materials Chemistry group.

She studied for long time the chemical and structural aspects of the biomineralization processes, which can be regarded as model systems for the design and development of new materials.

At present, the research interests include the design and development of innovative inorganic, polymeric and composite materials with tailored functional properties: synthesis and characterization of functionalized calcium phosphates through biomimetic methods; oriented growth of inorganic phases on functionalized matrices; design and development of new biomaterials for orthopaedics; chemical, structural and morphological characterization of inorganic materials.

Author and co-author of more than 230 international scientific publications, and of 2 international patents, she has presented invited lectures or was member of the Scientific Committee in several Italian and International Conferences.
Prof. Bigi is a reviewer of numerous scientific journals, and collaborates with many Italian and foreign groups.

Recently, she has been the scientific responsible for the University of Bologna of one European project, 3 PRIN projects, one FIRB project, one project in the framework of the Bilateral Scientific and Technological Cooperation Between Italy and Romania, one project in the framework of the exchange program Vigoni, one FARB project.
