Dr Di Bella is a Senior Research Fellow in Tissue Engineering Research in a dedicated program for musculo-skeletal regeneration called "the Advanced Limb Reconstruction Program", carried at Melbourne University.
Within this program, Dr Di Bella is the leader of the Cartilage Regeneration Program of Research. This is comprised by a highly driven multidisciplinary research team dedicated to advanced 3D bioprinting for musculoskeletal regeneration; more specifically, her research has the goal to find new strategies to treat cartilage injuries and early osteoarthritis.
Dr Di Bella's program is carried at the newly established BioFab3D, a dedicated 3D bioprinting facility for medical application.
Dr Di Bella is also an associate investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterial Science, University of Wollongong.
