Maria Liguori

I consider myself a clinical neurologist with interests in molecular biology and neuroimaging. In fact, during my university training, I developed a personal interest in genetics and MRI, which I tried to study in the subsequent course of my research activity, but always maintaining (in my opinion) a close contact with the clinical characteristics of the pathologies of interest, and therefore studying above all by looking at translational point of views. For this reason, I attended research institutes, in Italy and abroad (UK, USA), in order to learn not only new techniques but also innovative approaches to research. Back in Italy (late 2010), I started some of the lines of study that I currently follow; I have numerous contacts and collaborations with Clinical Centers of Neurology, CNR Institutes and other Research Institutions. At present I am responsible for some interesting projects concerning Neurodegenerative Diseases (especially Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Spinal Muscular Atrophy). I am honored to work with a group of colleagues whose skills range from biology to bioinformatics and biostatistics, up to chemistry and physics. In fact, I believe that no disease can be studied with a mono-disciplinary approach, but that comparisons and discussions among different expertise are essential. At the same time, I have an intense editorial activity as a reviewer of articles and research projects (national and international), which I consider important as well for professional growth and intellectual stimuli.
