Professor Simone Di Giovanni is an exceptionally well-regarded consultant neurologist who possesses expertise in areas such as nervous system repair and regeneration, peripheral nervous system disorders, neuropathies, spinal cord injuries, chronic pain, headache, COVID-19-related neurology, as well as radiculopathies. He currently holds an honorary post within the revered NHS as a consultant neurologist, and prior to this, had worked at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, as a research group leader and a stroke and general neurology consultant clinician.
Not only did the esteemed neurologist gain valuable experience in Germany, but so too over in the US, where he undertook his post-doctoral medical training in neuroscience at the Washington DC-based Georgetown University. Here, he studied gene expression regulation following injury to the spinal cord. Upon completion of his studies, Professor Di Giovanni would then go on to become a research instructor at the aforementioned university, between the years of 2004 and 2006. He studied medicine at La Sapienza University, Rome, and also successfully completed his neurology training again in Rome, this time at the Catholic University.
The revered doctor currently holds the role as chair in restorative neuroscience at Imperial College London, where he is also a Professor of Neuroscience and the lead of a research group that is responsible for carrying out research relating to the molecular signalling and transcriptional mechanisms that affect and control axonal sprouting and regeneration. This research that is carried out by Professor Di Giovanni and his team is aimed at having broad and significant implications for various conditions, including vascular, traumatic, metabolic, inflammatory and degenerative damage to the spinal cord as well as the peripheral nerves.
