Paolo Bianco was a Pathologist and Professor of Pathology at the University of Roma "La Sapienza". A major focus of his research effort was directed towards the definition of the pathogenesis of fibrous dysplasia of bone and related disorders using a combination of approaches involving both clinical histopathologic material and experimental in vivo and in vitro models. The perspective is the development of science-based, rational treatment modalities for skeletal disorders. Paolo has developed and contributed to multiple transnational collaborative projects for many years. Sadly Paolo Bianco died during Period 1 of the PluriMes Project. Mara Riminucci then took over as PI for University of Roma "La Sapienza".
