      Angelo Antonini

 



Angelo Antonini graduated in Medicine in 1986, and completed the training in Neurology in 1990. He received the PhD in Neuroscience in 1994. He continued his research at the New York University in 1995 as Assistant Professor. Back to Italy in 1998, he worked at the Institute for Parkinson's Disease in Milan. His research focused on the definition of chemical and functional alterations in Parkinson's, atypical parkinsonism (multisitemic atrophy and progressive supranuclear palsy), Huntington's dystonia and chorea using different neuroimaging techniques including PET, SPECT and MRI. His research also focuses on the pharmacology of dopaminergic drugs, neuroimaging and cognitive and behavioral aspects of the extrapyramidal system disease. He is currently president of the European section of the International Society for Movement Disorders (MDS) and is member of the Scientific Board of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN). The research activity held at the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Padua and at the University Hospital of Padua also includes pharmacological studies with innovative therapies including monoclonal antibodies in Parkinson's, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy and dementia. This is also a national reference center for deep brain stimulation (DBS) and for subcutaneous and duodenal infusion therapies (apomorphine and Duodopa). During his academic career, Angelo Antonini has published over 300 indexed manuscripts and numerous book chapters. He is an active reviewer for the main medical journals in medicine and neurology. H-Index: 71 (Scopus).

      Miryam Carecchio

 



Miryam Carecchio graduated in Medicine and Surgery in 2007 at the Università degli Studi del Piemonte Orientale Amedeo Avogadro , and completed her training in Neurology at the University of Turin in 2014. During her training she hold a Fellow position under the supervision of Prof. Bhatia at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery of London. She received the PhD in Molecular and Translational medicine at the University of Milan-Bicocca in 2018, studying at the IRCCS Carlo Besta in Milan and gaining specialty in pediatric movement disorders and neurogenetics. Since 2018, she is Assistant Professor at the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Padua. Her research topics mainly cover rare hyperkinetic movement disorders, with particular interest for pediatric and adult dystonia, chorea and myclonus, as well as for juvenile Parkinson’s Disease. She also developed a particular interest for cerebral diseases associated with metal accumulation (NBIA and PFBC) and hereditary metabolic diseases (Gaucher, Niemann-Pick, ecc.). She is member of the International Parkinson disease and Movement Disorder Society since 2018 (founding member of the Young group), and of the LIMPE-DisMOV Academy. She serves as reviewer for more than 10 international journals.

      Gianluigi Ricchieri

 



Gianluigi Ricchieri graduated in Medicine and Surgery in 1980 at the University of Padua, and completed his training in Neurology in 1984. From 1984 to 1987 he was a Visiting Fellow at the Laboratory of Neurosciences of the National Institute of Aging, NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA. He received the Board of Qualification on Alzheimer's Disease and dementia and deeply explored the effect of aging and associated to metabolism and the immune system on the brain, with particular interest to differential diagnostics and advanced therapies in dementia and neurodegenerative diseases ( Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and atypical parkinsonisms). He is Adjunct Professor at the Neurology School of the University of Padua.
