Andres is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Salamanca and visiting scholar at the University of Helsinki. His research is primarily in bioprinting & organ-on-a-chip for biomedical and other applications. At the Wyss, Andres is advancing next-generation of organ-on-a-chip efforts for mesenchymal stem cell differentiation, wound healing, and metabolic activity studies. His recent research activities include the use of stem cells for wound healing as well as the creation of substitutes using xeno-free cell derivatives. At the Wyss, Andres is collaborating with Professor Christopher Chen aiming to create functional vascularized organ-on-a-chip platforms for early obesity studies in vitro.
He received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Industrial Engineering at the University La Rioja, Spain. Andres also holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a B.S. in Electronics from the same university. His previous postdocs positions include Finland and Japan. He is a recipient of funding from the Solorzano Foundation and FEDER from the European Commission.
