Matilde Inglese, MD, PhD

About Me

Dr. Matilde Inglese is a Professor of Neurology, Radiology, and Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She received her medical degree magna cum laude from the University of Genoa, Italy and earned a PhD degree from the same university after her formal training in neurology. Dr. Inglese completed her post-doctoral training in Neuroimaging at San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy. Then, supported by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Dr. Inglese completed a fellowship in neuroimaging at New York University.

Her current research, supported by the National Institute of Health, focuses on the development and application of new structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques at high and ultra-high field strength, to study multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases. This work aims to identify the mechanisms of degeneration which lead to the accumulation of irreversible clinical disability, and to provide surrogate markers to monitor the efficacy of neuroprotective treatments in vivo.

Dr. Inglese serves as a member of the National Institute of Health study sections, and she is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Dr. Inglese is author and co-author of several original contributions published in the neurological and radiological scientific literature and several book chapters on clinical and basic research aspects of multiple sclerosis.
