Dr Gabriele De Marco

Visiting Clinical Research Fellow


I qualified as a doctor of medicine and surgery in Italy (2003), then I completed my specialty training in rheumatology (2007, Italy).

I have collaborated to research projects in Italy before moving to Leeds:

  • HERACLES project, a multi-centre study funded by the Italian charity Foundation for Research in Arthritis (FIRA onlus) and Pfizer Italia SRL. Total grant 60000 €.
  • EPIPSOFIRE project, an epidemiological study funded by Pfizer Italia SRL. Total grant 30000 €.

Research interests

Clinical effects of early-stage interventions in psoriatic arthritis (PsA), with a focus on comprehensive efficacy (i.e.: measurable responses across the spectrum of musculo-skeletal manifestations of PsA).

Measures of outcomes in spondyloarthritidies.

Multi-morbidity in spondyloarthropathies.

Advanced imaging in PsA.
