Research Summary

Dr. Palma's work over the past years has focused on the description of the autonomic phenotype and the search for biomarkers in patients with neurodegenerative autonomic disorders, including multiple system atrophy (MSA), Parkinson disease (PD) and pure autonomic failure (PAF).

Dr. Palma is one of the international coordinators of the Natural History Study of the Synucleinopathies. He is the principal or co-investigator in clinical trials for neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and multiple system atrophy as well as in the development of biomarkers of disease diagnosis and progression.

His work in rare diseases is also focused on genetic autonomic disorders. Dr. Palma is interested in defining the phenotype and genotype of and clinical trial design and conduct for familial dysautonomia (Riley-Day syndrome) and other rare hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathies (HSAN).
