Carlo Alviggi
Federico II University of Naples
Naples, Italy

Carlo Alviggi obtained his MD degree (1994) with a specialty in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (1998), and a PhD in 2001 at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy. In 1998 he was a visiting fellow in the IVF Unit of the Imperial College of London– Hammersmith Campus, where he also collaborated with the Department of Immunology (Imperial College of London).

Thereafter, he collaborated with the Laboratory of Immunology of the Italian National Research Council (Naples), the laboratory of Autoimmunity and Tolerance of the University of California (Los Angeles). This collaborative network resulted in various publications some of which concern new hypotheses on the pathogenesis of pelvic endometriosis.

Over recent years, he has been working as associate professor in reproductive medicine at the Fertility Unit of the University of Naples “Federico II” (Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive Science and Odontostomatology). Dr Alviggi has published extensively and has been invited to lecture at over 100 international meetings dealing with reproductive medicine and gynaecological endocrinology. He has also served as adhoc reviewer for international journals in these fields. He has participated in several national and international (phase II-III) multicentric, prospective randomised trials.

Dr Alviggi’s current research interests are the role of LH in folliculogenesis, the use of LH containing drugs in patients undergoing ovarian controlled stimulation for IVF, the pathogenesis of pelvic endometriosis, oncofertility, reproductive endocrinology and the genetics of human reproduction.
