Anna Mercante, MD


Visiting Scholar


I am a Child Neuropsychiatrist from the University Hospital of Padova, specializing in pediatric neurology and sleep medicine. I trained at the Centre of expertise for Narcolepsy and Sleep Disorders of Bologna (Italy), where I followed adult and pediatric patients with different sleep disorders, focusing on narcolepsy and central hypersomnias. My current research at The Mignot Lab covers the study of proteomics in narcolepsy to investigate the blood and CSF protein biomarkers associated with the disease and genetic linking. More fields I am interested in include neurophysiology, autoimmune neurology and neurodevelopmental disorders.
