Francesco Tamagnini

Degree in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and PhD in Neurophysiology, qualifications obtained at the University of Bologna. At the end of 2009, he moved to Bristol, where he finished his doctorate under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Aicardi and Prof. Zafar Bashir. In 2012, he became a postdoctoral researcher for 3 years in the laboratory of Prof. Andrew Randall and worked on the electrophysiological correlates of dementia at the level of the single nerve cell. Following this experience, he obtained a 3-year Junior Fellowship, delivered by the Alzheimer's Society. In September 2017, the University of Reading offers Francesco a professorship as assistant professor in Pharmacology. In recent years, it has established a collaboration with the University of San Marino and the Social Security Institute, which aims, together with the team of Dr Susanna Guttmann, to develop electroencephalography as an early, economic and non-invasive diagnostic system for the Alzheimer's disease.
