Why you should listen

Prof. Roberto Berni Canani received his MD and PhD degrees from University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy. He is board certified in Pediatrics. Chief of the Pediatric Allergy Program at the Department of Translational Medical Science and founder of the ImmunoNutritionLab at CEINGE Advanced Biotechnologies, Univ. of Naples Federico II.

 

Prof. R. Berni Canani has developed an interdisciplinary research team and a highly integrated research clinical program to better understand the pathogenic mechanisms of GI diseases and provide the best care for children affected by these disorders. His research is focused on the identification of the best strategies for the management of pediatric GI disorders. He uses a bench to bedside approach to investigate pathophysiological basis of pediatric GI diseases including animal models, peripheral blood cells culture from children, epigenetics biomarkers involved regulation of GI and immune system function, gut microbiome structure and function analysis.

 

His studies on gut microbiome, probiotics, postbiotics, immune tolerance and immunonutrition have already been translated into novel concepts and lead to a paradigm shift in the pathogenesis and treatment of pediatric GI diseases.

 

He is author of more than 300 publications. His publications are widely quoted. Associate editor of World Journal of Gastroenterology, Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Research, Frontiers in Nutrition, Frontiers in Allergy, International Journal of Autoimmune Disease & Therapy.
