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:

- EPIPSOFIRE project, an epidemiological study funded by Pfizer Italia SRL. Total grant 30000 €.

Measures of outcomes in spondyloarthritidies.
Multi-morbidity in spondyloarthropathies.
Advanced imaging in PsA.
