Marco Pagani

Functional Neuroimaging
Research center
Marco Pagani is a Marie Curie Global Research Fellow at the Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Italy) and at the Autism Center of Child Mind Institute (New York). His main research interest is to use magnetic resonance imaging and advanced computational methods to study the architecture of the rodent and human brain and its alterations in pathological states. By adopting translationally-relevant functional measurements, Dr. Pagani has identified network-level alterations associated to genetic causes of autism spectrum disorder in multiple mouse models. Building upon his expertise in neuroimaging, computer science and statistics, his current research aims to develop novel cross-species approaches to decompose the multilevel heterogeneity of autism into neuro-functional subtypes. During his doctoral training, he has also pioneered the use of structural covariance in small rodents leading to the identification of gray matter networks recapitulating the organization of the human brain. Marco Pagani is author and co-author of over 30 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including Brain, Journal of Neuroscience, NeuroImage and Science Advances. He has been also selected to present at Italian, US and international scientific conferences. His current research is founded by a competitive European Union grant scheme for young researchers.
