I am a neurology resident from the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Rome, Italy. During my residency I have developed an interest in neurological autoimmune disorders, with a research focus on autoimmune encephalitis and paraneoplastic neurological syndromes. In June 2022 I have had the incredible opportunity to come to Lyon to visit the French Reference Center of Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes and Autoimmune Encephalitis, led by Professor Honnorat. I have been welcomed by an amazing team, and a friendly environment filled with opportunities to learn from experts conducting clinical, pre-clinical and translational research at the highest level.
I am currently focusing on autoimmune encephalitis associated with anti-LGI1 antibodies, and after my residency I will be staying as a research fellow to continue developing my projects.
