Annamaria de Luca

Annamaria is a pharmacologist specialized in pre-clinical in vivo and ex vivo studies of inherited and acquired neuromuscular disorders. In this general frame, she has a long lasting experience in preclinical research on pharmacological treatments for DMD and collaborates with leading scientists in the field.

She developed multidisciplinary assays for mdx and largely contributed to standardization of methods used to test pathology progression and drug efficacy, especially muscle functionality and electrophysiology. She has a profound knowledge of mouse physiology and pathology and hence of the critical points that make out the quality of a study. She is actively engaged in the pre-clinical work within TREAT-NMD and started working at the harmonization of preclinical studies on mdx before TREAT-NMD was launched.
