Dr. Enrico Opri completed his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biomedical Engineering at
Politecnico di Milano and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University in the Neurology Department. His work has been supported by the APDA postdoctoral fellowship, NIH Udall Pilot, NIH T32, and MNI-BI 2022 Neuroregeneration and Cognition.

Research Interests

The Opri laboratory focuses on the exploration of the neurophysiological activity in the basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits in humans affected by neurological disorders (such as Parkinson’s, Tourette, Essential Tremor, and Epilepsy) while investigating how neuromodulation (e.g. Deep Brain Stimulation, cortical stimulation mapping) alters these networks to bring a therapeutic benefit. Our aim is to identify neurological biomarkers that can be leveraged to strengthen the current clinical procedures employed for the treatment of neurological disorders, including advancements in closed-loop neurostimulation. Our goal is to engineer novel methodologies for the automatization and enhancement of clinical procedures in the field of neuromodulation.
