Prof. Paolo Machi
Head of Interventional Neuroradiology Unit at University Hospitals of Geneva Switzerland
Dr. Paolo Machi is the head of the interventional neuroradiology unit of the university hospital of Geneva (Switzerland) and professor of interventional neuroradiology at the faculty of medicine of the Geneva University.
He has been trained in interventional neuroradiology by Professor Bonafé in Montpellier (France) where he was fellow in 2008 and staff member between 2009 and 2015.
In 2016 he obtained a doctorate (Ph.D.) in mechanical engineering at the University of Montpellier with a thesis focused on the experimental evaluation of stent retrievers’ mechanical properties and effectiveness.
At present, he leads a research group based at Campus Biothec (Geneva) granted by the Swiss National Science Foundation focused on the development of a robotic arm conceived to assist the operator during mechanical thrombectomy procedures. The group is also focused on the mechanical evaluation of endovascular devices conceived to treat ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke and on the applications of the artificial intelligence in neurointervention.
