Dr Martina Maria Mensi
The main research topics developed in recent years, with results published and shared at conferences and in various international journals, include:
Major research collaborations include with the University of Monza-Bicocca; the Bambino Gesù Institute in Rome; the University of South Florida; and Yale University as part of an international multicenter study. The Unit has been part of the Lombardy network dedicated to Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) since its establishment. Also of note is the implementation of a collaboration with Radboud University in Nijmegen (NL) and the University of South Florida. Within the Mondino Foundation, there is active and ongoing collaboration with other Research Centers for the development of common lines; this also allows access to diagnostic and research instrumentation (e.g., MRI, electroencephalography…). Finally, specialist physicians in training from the School of Specialization in Child Neuropsychiatry of the University of Pavia actively collaborate in research activities; clinical and research collaborations are also active with various schools of specialization in psychotherapy.
Finally, the Unit collaborates on multicenter trials, often international; in particular, studies related to Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Drug-Resistant Mood Disorders in Adolescence, Psychotic Disorders in Adolescence, and Idiopathic Headache in Developmental Age are active.
