He graduated cum laude in July 2006 from University Campus Bio-Medico where he earned his M.D. Afterwards, he attended a residency program in Endocrinology and Metabolism at University Campus Bio-Medico, Rome, Italy. During his specialization, he combined his clinical training as a diabetologist with the study of novel non-injectable insulin formulations such as the buccal spray insulin. Successively, he began his PhD course in the field of Endocrinology at the same institution. During this time, he established the basis for his future research. In particular, he focused his research interests on calcium and bone metabolism, investigating new diagnostics and therapeutic aspects of clinical and subclinical forms of parathyroid glands diseases. During his PhD program, he also attended The Academic Unit of Bone Metabolism (Sheffield, UK) directed by Prof Richard Eastell where he successfully studied the normocalcemic Hypoparathyroidism and its potential genetic impairment. He has won awards for his research at national and international meetings. Most recently, he received the young investigator award from the “American Society of Bone and Mineral Research” and the “Endocrine Society”. He is member of the ECTS Academy.
