BIOGRAFIA

MASSIMO NICOLO’

Massimo Nicolò è nato a Genova il 24 Febbraio del 1970.

E’ laureato in medicina e chirurgia dal 1994. E’ stato research fellow nel laboratorio di biologia molecolare delle patologie della retina presso i l new england eyes center – tufts university a boston.

Si è specializzato in oculistica presso la clinica oculistica dell’università di genova  e ha conseguito nella medesima università il dottorato di ricerca im biologia e patologia dell’invecchiamento.

 

Attualmente è Ricercatore Universitario presso la Clinica Oculistica dell’Università di Genova e docente di malattie dell’apparato visivo nei corsi di laurea in medicina e chirurgia, ortottica e neuropsicomotricità dell’età evolutiva.

 

I suoi principali campi d’interesse sono le malattie degenerative e vascolari della retina e della macula. E’ co-investigator e principal investigator in trials clinici sulle patologie maculari.

 

Fa parte del consiglio di amministrazione della Fondazione per la Macula onlus

E’ fondatore e siede nel direttivo della Società degli Oftalmologi Universitari

E’ membro della Società Italiana Retina (SIR) e degli specialisti retinologi europei (EURETINA)
