Fabio Sambataro is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Padova from 2019.
Trained as a psychiatrist at the University of Catania, where he received a PhD in Neuroscience in a joint program with the University of Bari (Prof. A. Bertolino). During his post-doctoral training at the NIMH (Prof. D. Weinberger), and the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Prof. G. Rizzolatti) he has investigated the brain mechanisms underlying cognition, aging and psychiatric disorders.
He was the director of the Clinical Imaging Lab of the pRED, NORD DTA, Roche Innovation Center, Basel, in 2014-2015, when he became associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Udine.
His research interests entail the brain mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology and the response to treatment of major psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia and mood disorders.
To pursue our research interests, we use structural and functional neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and genetics using uni- and multivariate models.
