Alfonso Galderisi was born in Naples (Italy) on 27.08.1986. He has spent most of his medical and post-degree training working on pediatric diabetes and glycemic control, being involved in both translation research and clinical trials in pediatric diabetology.
As medical student he was trained at Second University of Naples, working on monogenic diabetes with the group of Prof Dario Iafusco and on the epidemiology of type 1 diabetes in twins in join with the Italian Ministry of Health.
Later, as student, he obtained two awards from Second University of Naples that allowed him to spend two summers at Joslin Diabetes Center (Boston, USA) working on a translational research project focused on cardiac autoimmunity in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes with the group of Prof Myra Lipes and Prof Howard Wolpert.
He graduated in 2010 with a thesis developed at Joslin Diabetes Center (Harvard Medical School) titled “Cardiac autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes”. He moved, then, to University of Padova (Padova, Italy) for starting the residency program in Pediatrics. During the residency, he continued his collaboration with the group of Prof. Lipes working again at Joslin in 2014, after having obtained a grant from European Foundation of Diabetes (EFSD/EASD). During that period he continued his translational research work focused on the determinants of cardiac autoimmunity in both pediatric and adult subjects with type 1 diabetes, collaborating with Prof. Wolpert, director of the Joslin Institute for Technology Translation.
In Padova, during the residency program in Pediatrics, once he came back from the research experience at Joslin, he started a 18 months internship in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. During that period, in collaboration with the bioengineers’ group headed by Prof Claudio Cobelli (Padova) and with Garry Steil (Boston Children’s Hospital), he conducted a trial based on a CGM-driven algorithm for adjusting glucose daily intakes in preterms in order to achieve euglycemia ( NCT02583776), whose results were presented at the Pediactric Academic Societies annual meeting (PAS) in May 2016.During 2016 he has been involved in the first Italian Artificial Pancreas Trial in Pediatrics at University of Padova, directed by Prof Cobelli and Prof. Bruttomesso.
Currently he is completing is residency in Pediatrics at University of Padova, working on the applications of continuous glucose monitoring in both children with diabetes and preterm newborns.
