Professor Aflredo Gorio, PhD, is a Professor of Medical Pharmacology, University of Milan, Italy. Dr. Gorio is also a member of the National Committee of Spinal Cord Injuries and Director of the Scientific Committee. He is head of the Multi-specialized Study Group in basic and clinical research on rare diseases, such as tuberous sclerosis (Bournonville Disease), and lymphangioleiomyomatosis or sporadic pulmonary LAM at hospitals in San Paolo and Humanitas. Dr. Gorio was a brilliant high school and university student in Milan, Italy, where he obtained the highest marks and awards. In 1974, he joined the Rockefeller University in New York, NY, United States. He worked alongside Dr. Phil Siekevitz, the pioneer of the neuromuscular junction and was awarded the Postdoctoral Research Award for Muscular Dystrophy (1976-1978). He has worked at the University of Milan since 1989. Recognized by his peers as one of the world's pioneers in regeneration of nerves in the 1980s, he focused his research on peripheral neuropathies and neuromuscular transmission. His scientific interest also focused on neuronal degeneration, the role played by diabetes, and the events leading to the secondary regeneration process for acute Central Nervous System (CNS) lesions. Recently, Dr. Gorio has identified erythopoietin (EPO) as a neuroprotective agent in acute traumatic lesions of the spinal cord. These reports and the rapid development of the scientific literature led to a wave of clinical studies of human patients suffering from either CNS or spinal cord lesions. Dr. Gorio's team is also at the forefront in the purification and study of neural precursor cells (NPC) and their possible role in spinal cord injuries (SCI). More recently, A Gorio described a new type of NPC, which, collected 6 hours after death, is able to survive in the adverse environment of a traumatic spinal cord injury. Their differentiation gives a much higher percentage of neurons and this is due to the release of EPO and its action. Preliminary results suggest that these cells may represent a more effective approach to the treatment of CNS degenerative diseases. In this context, he has been describing the novel activities of mechanically activated adipose tissue for treating peripheral tissues inflammation and spinal cord injury. Professor Gorio is the author of over 500 scientific publications and editor of 11 books devoted to neural regeneration. Scopus RsearcherId

Dr. Roberto Gramignoli’s primary interest has always been to investigate new, advanced cellular treatments for acute or congenital liver disorders. His group successfully proposed solutions for the advancement of hepatocyte transplant as a bridge or alternative therapy to orthotopic liver transplantation. It was established that the main limiting factor in hepatocyte transplant is the availability of useful cells. Dr. Gramignoli focused his energy to identify alternative sources for mature and functional hepatocytes, such as cells isolated from non-heart beating donors, or explanted liver tissues, or fetal and neonatal hepatic progenitors, with greatest results obtained by transplantation of perinatal amnion epithelial cells. All the validated cell sources have been successfully translated into clinical programs.
