Biography

Dr. Stefano Previtali carries out his clinical activities in the Department of Neurology of the IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele under the supervision of Professor Massimo Filippi.

After graduating from the University of Milan in Medicine and Surgery in 1990, he specialized in neurology in 1994 and received his PhD in Neurology from the same university in 1998.

Dr. Previtali is responsible for the Department of Muscle Biopsy (Morphological, Histoenzymatic, Immunohistochemical, and Western Blot) and is an expert in neuromuscular diseases, with special attention to myopathies (genetic and acquired) and genetic neuropathies (CMT) in both adults and in children.

In terms of research activities, Dr. Previtali is responsible for the Neuromuscular Regeneration Research Department. He is mainly engaged in identifying new therapeutic strategies and identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying some diseases, including: Duchenne muscular dystrophy, facioscapulo-brachial dystrophy, congenital dystrophy due to merosin deficiency (LAMA2), laminopathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT). He is the author and co-author of more than 100 publications in industry scientific journals and book sections. His Hirsch Index is 37. He constantly participates in national and international industry congresses.
