Assistant Professor, Neurology IC
University of Catania, Italy
[Read Interview session with GIUSEPPE LANZA]


I was born in Catania (Italy) in 1982. I currently work as a Senior Academic Researcher and Assistant Professor at the University of Catania (Italy). After graduation with honours in Medicine, I trained at the School of Neurology and got the international PhD at the same University. As visiting Clinical Research Fellow, I further trained at the Department of Neuroscience and Clinical Neurophysiology of the Newcastle University (UK). In 2013 I was selected for a Scientific Fellowship promoted by the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS). From 2013 to October 2018, I worked as a Consultant Neurologist at the “Oasi Research Institute–IRCCS” in Troina (Italy), which is a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization (WHO), and where now I currently hold the position of Chief of the Clinical Neurophysiology Research Unit. From 2015 to October 2018, I taught Neurology at the University of Enna (Italy). I have authored more than 150 publications in internationally-indexed peer-reviewed Journals and Conferences or Meetings, and I currently serve as Editor and invited Reviewer of several international Journals. More recently, I have obtained the Master of Science in Clinical Research and the National Scientific Qualification as Full Professor (procedure for the Italian University Professor recruiting, based on criteria of scientific qualification). I would like to become an Editor of this prestigious Journal for a number of reasons. First, given its influential role within the international network related to this topic, the Journal represents an outstanding chance to get connected with other clinicians and researchers from other countries. Second, an Editor is always updated in a wide variety of “hot topics”, including these “cutting edge” subjects, emerging field of research, and innovative therapies. Third, this position may provide the opportunity to advance scientific and academic career. Finally, as part of a dynamic international community, an Editor can reach a globally distributed audience to present research or scientific achievements. In conclusion, given my clinical background and research interests, I would be honoured and delighted to join you as Editorial Board member of this Journal and to contribute to its high scientific and academic level. Thank you once again for your valuable consideration, looking forward to read your response. Yours sincerely, Giuseppe Lanz
