People - Parazzini Marta

Marta Parazzini received the M Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy, in 2000. In 2004 she received the Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering and the European Doctorate from the Polytechnic of Milan. From 2005 to 2013 she was Research Scientist at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering of the Italian National Research Council (ISIB CNR). In Sepember 2013 she joined the Institute of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunication Engineering (IEIIT) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) as Research Scientist.

Her primary research interests are the study of the interaction of electromagnetic fields (EMF) with biological systems, the deterministic and stochastic computational dosimetry of EMF, the study of possible effects of EMF on health and the medical applications of EMF, in particular the techniques for non-invasive brain and spinal stimulation.

At present, she is involved in the following projects:
ii) EU project Fp7-ENV-2013 GERONIMO “Generalised EMF Research using Novel Methods - an integrated approach: from research to risk assessment and support to risk management” (2014-2018, Grant agreement 603794);
ii) H2020 project “CUPIDO - Cardio Ultraefficient nanoParticles for Inhalation of Drug prOducts” (Grant Agreement 2017-2021, N. 720834);
iii) COST Action European network for innovative uses of EMFs in biomedical applications (EMF-MED, 2014-2018);
iv) “ELFSTAT - In depth evaluation of children’s exposure to ELF (40 – 800 Hz) magnetic fields and implications for health risk of new technologies”- financed by Anses (2015-2019);
v) “AMPERE”- Advanced MapPing for the residential ExposuRE to RF- EMF sources - financed by Anses (2016-2020)

She is member elected of the Italian National Bioengineering Group and member elected of the Council of the European BioElectromagnetics Association EBEA (2013-2017).
Since 2001, she is Lecturer at the Polytechnic of Milan for the course of "Bioelettromagnetismo e Strumentazione biomedica" at the Biomedical Engineering Course. From December 2014 to December 2020 she got the National Scientific Qualification as Associate Professor in Bioengineering (09/G2).
