Curriculum

Marina Bentivoglio, M.D., is Professor of Histology at the University of Verona, Italy. She graduated in Medicine at the Catholic University of Rome, Italy, where she also did her residency in Neurology. After her training in clinical neurology and in neuropathology, she focused on experimental approaches to the study of neural connectome, the neural regulation of sleep and wakefulness, the neurobiology of disease. Fellow at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (The Netherlands), she spent periods of training and collaborative research at the Karolinska Institutet, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC, the Laboratory of Neuropsychology at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). She served as Secretary General of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO; 2007-2009) and as President of the Italian Society of Neuroscience (SINS) (2008-2009) and in Committees of the Federation of the European Neuroscience Societies (FENS). She is member of the Council of the Rita Levi-Montalcini Foundation for the education of African women, and of several scientific academies, including the European Academy. She has served as reviewer of national and international funding agencies, including the European Commission, and the French Agence Nationale de Recherche (ANR). She is actively engaged in the training of young investigators and in activities to foster international cooperation in the neurological sciences. Since 2001 she has participated as teacher or co-organizer in about 50 International Neuroscience Schools (mostly funded  by IBRO) in many different countries, and in particular in the African continent. Her research focuses on neural-immune interactions in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions, aging, sleep disorders, and on the connectome and synaptic plasticity in these conditions, with particular reference to sleep/wake-regulatory neural circuits.
