Alessandra Bolino


I am the Head of the Inherited Neuropathy Unit in the Institute of Experimental Neurology (INSPE) at the Ospedale San Raffaele in Milan and adjunct Professor of Experimental Biology at the University of Bergamo, Italy. I am a member of the Board of the Peripheral Nerve Society.
I received a PhD in Medical Genetics and a postdoctoral training in Human Genetics at the University of Oxford, UK. Research in my group focus on inherited neuropathies with the aim to identify novel disease genes; to elucidate molecular mechanisms regulating myelination and myelin homeostasis in the nerve, and to design strategies for the therapy of these and related disorders.
