Alberto E Musto, MD, PhD is a Physician-Scientist and Medical Educator of the Department of Pathology and Anatomy of the Eastern Virginia Medical School, Virginia, USA. His scientific goal is to identify a potential biomarker and preventive therapies for epilepsy. Currently, his research is focusing in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of immune-inflammatory process that contribute to the development of aberrant neuronal networks after brain injuries. He has been studied the role of pro-inflammatory mediators in experimental models of epilepsy using in vivo recordings of neural activities from chronically implanted microelectrodes in the brain and its correlations with neural damage, microglia cells and dendritic spine modifications using histological and biochemical approaches. He has been involved actively in medical education and neuroscience research in Universidad de Buenos Aires, and Universidad Austral, Argentina and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, USA supported by CONICET, Argentina and NIH, USA. He received board certifications in both Neurology and Radiology, completed Post-graduate studies in medical education, and management in health systems in Argentina. He completed a doctoral thesis in Neurobiology in Argentina and a Post-doctoral fellowship in neuroprotection in USA.
