Luca Berdondini was born in 1974, in Locarno (Switzerland). He currently leads the NetS3 Laboratory at the Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), an interdisciplinary research laboratory launched in 2008 to develop innovative CMOS-based neuroelectronic technologies for research in neuroscience and biomedical applications. 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). In 2003 he received a PhD on nano-/micro-fabricated interfaces and CMOS devices for electrophysiology (Samlab, EPFL, Switzerland). He is among the pioneers of CMOS-based multielectrode arrays for high-resolution electrophysiology, co-founder of 3Brain AG (Switzerland) and he has contributed to >70 publications and several patents.
