Curriculum

Principali aree di ricerca:
(a) Valutazione dell'efficacia e tollerabilità degli psicofarmaci, sia attraverso la pianificazione e realizzazione di studi epidemiologici, osservazionali e sperimentali, sia attraverso la produzione di revisioni sistematiche della letteratura e meta-analisi;
(b) Ricerca traslazionale (translational research), interessata al processo che parte dalla produzione delle evidenze scientifiche e porta alla loro applicazione nella pratica clinica quotidiana. Tale processo prevede lo sviluppo di linee guida e indicazioni operative conformi ai precetti della medicina basata sulle prove di efficacia (evidence-based medicine) e del modello del processo decisionale condiviso (shared-decision making).
