Overview

Gianni Soldati, born in 1958 in Lugano, made his studies in Lugano, where he obtained his “Teaching Diploma”.

In 1981 he started his biological curriculum in Geneva, Faculty of Sciences, obtaining his Diploma in Biology in 1985 at the Centre Médical Universitaire (CMU). He then reached Locarno for his Ph.D studies, at the “Centro di Endocrinologia per la Riproduzione” headed by Dr. M. Balerna and Dr. A. Campana.


In 1991 he got his Ph.D in pharmacology at the University of Basel. In 1991 he left for a post-doctoral period in Basel at both the “Friedrich Miescher Institut” and the “Zentrum für Lehre und Forschung”, followed by a 6 months period in London at the Institute of Child Health.


After this period he returned to Locarno to work at the “Servizio Oncologico Cantonale” with Prof. F. Cavalli for five years on the molecular diagnosis of tumours. In 1996 he founded the Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory that is now operative since then. In 2004 the LDM was transferred to the Cardiocentro Ticino in Lugano and performed the first swiss stem cell transplant in a patient with acute myocardial infarct in August 2004. In 2005 he founded the Swiss Stem Cells Bank in Lugano, Cardiocentro Ticino.


He has become since then Director of the Cell Therapy Unit of the Cardiocentro Ticino with the aim of studying and developing new cell therapies for the man. In 2009 he become President of the Swiss Stem Cell Foundation in Lugano, a foundation dedicated to applied research for human cell therapies.
