Mario Cannas holds an M.D. degree and serves as the Scientist responsible for the Research Unit of the Human Anatomy Laboratory. He is a Full‐Time Professor of human anatomy. His research activities during the last years have involved medical aspects oriented principally toward biocompatibility and tissue engineering fields; observations have been conducted by him on the adhesion and behavior of primary and stable cell lines (such as endothelial cells, staminal cells, fibroblasts, and osteoblasts) in several static and dynamic experimental conditions and on different substrata of possible surgical use and in the presence of different growth factors. Also Cannas has conducted some studies on the morphological and histochemical characteristics of the new formed preimplantation tissue, along with cutaneous substitutes. His laboratory has also two bioreactors and other facilities, and it is involved principally in the different aspects of tissue engineering area (cardiovascular and orthopedic aspects).
