Dr. Cimadomo received his Bachelor of Science degree magna cum laude in Biotechnology at University of Pavia in 2009 and Master of Science magna cum laude and a special mention in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the same University in 2012.

In 2013, he attended to a specialization course in Novel technologies in molecular medicine at the University of Padova.

In January 2018, he obtained his PhD at the University of Rome "Sapienza" with a Thesis entitled "MicroRNAs in human spent blastocyst culture media: mediators of an embryo-endometrium dialogue. Novel potential non-invasive biomarkers of reproductive competence in IVF”.

He has followed a three-year internship in the laboratory headed by Prof Carlo Alberto Redi, Prof Silvia Garagna and Prof Maurizio Zuccotti at the University of Pavia (Italy) between 2009 and 2012.

He has also followed a three-month internship in the lab headed by Prof Miguel Constancia at the University of Cambridge (UK) in summer 2011.

Since 2012 he has been working as molecular biologist for G.EN.E.R.A., Reproductive Medicine Centers (Italy) (Clinical director: dr Filippo Maria Ubaldi; Laboratory director: dr Laura Rienzi) and collaborated with GENETYX, Molecular Biology Laboratory (Italy) (Laboratory director: dr Antonio Capalbo).

Since October 2017, he is the scientific coordinator of the G.EN.E.R.A., Reproductive Medicine Centers (Italy).

His research is focused on preimplantation genetic testing and on the development of novel molecular methods to improve pregnancy and take-home baby rates in IVF.

He was awarded with two grants from the University of Rome "Sapienza", three prizes (1st, 2nd and 3rd) for the best oral presentation at the National meetings of reproductive medicine which are held every here in Riccione, and participated in two grants for fertility innovation (GFI).
Since 2018, he is part of the scientific committee of the Italian Society of Embryology, Research and Reproduction (SIERR).

In 2018, he has been selected in an ESHRE working group to update the recommendations on embryo biopsy.

He is reviewer for several Journals in the field of repoductive medicine.

He published more than 30 papers in international Journals and several abstracts at national and international meetings.
