Janne T. Koivisto
Post doctoral researcher
Janne Koivisto received his M.Sc.(Tech.) degree on Materials Science and Engineering from the BioMediTech Institute of Tampere University of Technology, majoring in Biomaterials. His master's thesis Janne did on "Differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells into peripheral neural cells" in the University of Tampere in Prof. Katriina Aalto-Setälä's Heart Group. After graduation, he continued from project researcher to doctoral studies under Prof. Minna Kellomäki in the Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering Research Group, while also maintaining a position in the Heart Group. He defended his doctoral dissertation in November 2019 in Tampere University, on the topic Development and characterization of gellan gum based hydrogels for soft tissue engineering applications.
At the moment he is working as a post doctoral researcher under Adjunct Prof. Gabriela Lorite in the Microelectronics Research Unit in University of Oulu. His aim is to bring the hydrogel and biomaterial knowledged learned during the doctoral studies to help his new research group and to learn more on material characterization and production methods, specifically on the nanoscale.
