Giulia Di Stefano

Giulia Di Stefano, MD, PhD, is a researcher of Sapienza University of Rome, at the Department of Human Neuroscience. In the last 10 years, her research projects focused on the development of new, neurophysiological techniques to test the nociceptive afferents, on the application of neurophysiological and morphometric techniques in the study of the pathophysiological mechanisms of pain and on the investigation of possible biomarkers to predict drug response in patients with neuropathic pain. In 2013, in the framework of a fellowship at the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, University College of London, she focused on the trigeminal function, and on the brainstem circuitry of defensive responses in humans. One of the main research themes is the study of the pathophysiological mechanisms of facial pain, with a specific focus on trigeminal neuralgia.
