Biography

Dr. Perilli, Senior Lecturer, Medical Device Research Institute, Flinders University; Affiliate Lecturer, Discipline of Anatomy & Pathology, School of Medical Sciences, The University of Adelaide; Honorary Fellow, Dept. of Medicine, Austin Health, The University of Melbourne. Between 2008-2011: Senior Research Fellow, Bone & Joint Research Lab, Surgical Pathology, SA Pathology, Adelaide. His research is in 2D and 3D quantitative imaging of bone structure and biomaterials combined with biomechanical testing. The main field of research is in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

He developed his scientific research background in Europe. 2007-2008: Post-Doctoral Researcher at company SkyScan, Kontich, Belgium (micro-CT systems manufacturer, now Bruker micro-CT), in collaboration with Visionlab, Dept. of Physics, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium. 2002-2007: Scientific researcher at Medical Technology Laboratory, Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy, carrying out research in bone micro-CT imaging combined with biomechanical testing.

His research projects involve a number of medical imaging techniques, in particular state of the art micro-CT, both in vitro and in vivo, of bone samples and entire bone segments, on human tissue and animal models. These techniques are used for quantitatively determining bone structure at micro and macro level, density and morphometry. The mechanical strength of the bone is determined via experimental testing, for investigating the relationships between bone structural parameters and mechanical properties.

He is involved in the supervision of bone and joint-related pathology research topics for post-graduate research projects, Honours projects and PhD projects. He is peer-reviewer for international scientific journals and external reviewer of National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Wellcome Trust (UK), Research Foundation Flaanders (Belgium), Dutch Arhtirits Foundation (Netherlands) grant applications.

Research interests

My research is in 2D and 3D quantitative imaging of bone structure and biomaterials combined with biomechanical testing. The main field of investigation is in musculoskeletal diseases, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. The projects I am active in involve a number of biomedical imaging techniques, in particular state of the art micro-CT, both in vitro and in vivo, of bone samples and entire bone segments, on human tissue and animal models. These techniques are used for quantitatively determining bone structure, density and morphometric parameters. The mechanical strength of the bone is determined via experimental testing, for investigating the relationships between bone structural parameters and mechanical properties of the sample.
