After graduating in medicine from the University of Rome “Sapienza”, Emanuele completed advanced clinical training in Internal Medicine (sub-specialty: cardiovascular medicine), including a fellowship in cardiac imaging at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris. He then completed an MSc in Medical Statistics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Cambridge. Emanuele joined the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit in 2005 and took up his present position as University Lecturer in 2010.
His research focuses on issues related to screening and risk assessment for cardiovascular disease with a particular interest on biochemical and genetic factors. He works closely with several large-scale epidemiological studies, including: (i) the Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration (a collaborative meta-analysis of individual data from several prospective studies); (ii) the Reykjavik Prospective Study (a large prospective study of middle-aged men and women in Iceland) and (iii) the Pakistan Risk of Myocardial Infarction Study (a case-control study of gene-lifestyle interplay in myocardial infarction in Pakistan). Emanuele is also the scientific coordinator of the Natriuretic Peptides Studies Collaboration (a collaborative pooling of individual participant data on natriuretic peptides and cardiovascular disease) and he is involved in planning epidemiological studies of cardiovascular disease in previously understudied populations.
