Italian endocrinologist and nutritionist currently Researcher of Techniques Applied Medical Sciences at the Rome University of Movement Science (IUSM) with teaching and research background in the fields of endocrinology and metabolism and special expertise in skeletal diseases and obesity. M.D. and Ph.D. in Endocrinology and Metabolism from the University of Sapienza of Rome, Migliaccio is interested in metabolism and endocrinology, both at clinical and basic science levels, and in the role that a correct life style (nutrition and physical activity), but also environmental factors, can play in the maintenance of individual wellness and health. She has recently been researching how diet and physical activity can modulate cell behavior in vitro and influence obese subjects clinical pathophysiology. Past professional appointments have included the positions of post-doctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Department of Physiology and Pediatric Endocrinology (USA) and Visiting Associate at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH at Research Triangle Park North Carolina (USA). She also conducted research at the University of San Antonio Medical Center, Texas (USA).
