Biography

Antonio Gambardella is full professor of Neurology in the Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences, University Magna Graecia - Catanzaro, Italy. He is a clinical neurologist and clinical researcher with a special interest in establishing close research links with basic scientists. His group, together with molecular genetic collaborators in Italy, discovered in 2000 the beta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene for nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy and subsequently has been involved in the discovery of other epilepsy genes. A more recent important scientific result has been the discovery of novel gene KCNT1 associated with a severe form of progressive myoclonus epilepsy. He has also focused on clinical and neurophysiological aspects, and genetics of temporal lobe epilepsy, the most common type of focal epilepsy. He is currently an active investigator of the "Epi25" Collaborative group that has developed from an initiative coming out of the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) Consortium on Genetics of Complex Epilepsies to make more rapid progress towards fully understanding the inherited components of epilepsies
