Gastone Ciuti received the master’s degree (with honours) in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2008 with a thesis entitled Study and development of endoscopic robot with locomotion based on permanent magnetic field, carried on at CRIM (Center for Research in Microengineering) Lab of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy. In the same year he joined the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa as a Ph.D. student and in 2012 he obtained the Ph.D. in Innovative Technologies of Info. & Com. Eng. and Robotics at The BioRobotics Institute of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna discussing a thesis entitled Innovative control platform for robotic microsystems in endoluminal surgery. Gastone Ciuti is currently an Assitant Professor at The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Surgical Robotics and Allied Technologies group and head of the Computer-Integrated Technologies for Robotic Surgery laboratory (from January 1st, 2014).

His current research interests include robot-assisted platforms (e.g., teleoperated magnetic-based robotic platforms) for navigation, localization and tracking of smart and innovative devices for focused and targeted minimally invasive surgery and diagnosis (e.g., in advanced capsule endoscopy and cardiovascular surgery). The research vision of Gastone Ciuti is aimed at encouraging cross-fertilization between different disciplines, creating innovative knowledge substrates from which generating novel technological solutions for focused/guided diagnosis and therapy and enlarging/opening new scenarios of Bioengineering.
