About Michael A Pizzi

Michael Pizzi, DO, PhD is a board-certified neurologist and neurointensivist. He received his medical degree from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. During medical school Dr. Pizzi was selected for a clinical and research externship at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, where his work on using nanoparticles to facilitate axonal regeneration won the Sarah Baskin award for best research project. Dr. Pizzi completed his internship in internal medicine and neurology residency at the University of Florida-Jacksonville, where he served as chief administrative resident. Dr. Pizzi completed his neurocritical care fellowship at Mayo Clinic Florida, where he received the critical care echocardiography fellow of the year award. Prior to medical school, Dr. Pizzi earned his MS (Florida State University) and PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin) in neuroscience. Dr. Pizzi’s dissertation research project utilized a novel mechanism by which cancer cells spread in order to facilitate axonal regeneration after traumatic spinal cord injury.

Research Profile

Understanding the mechanisms of blood brain barrier breakdown after various acute neurologic injuries. Through better understanding of this degradative process, potential therapeutic modalities can be investigated to decrease this breakdown. Preserving the blood brain barrier may improve the effectiveness of medications given for brain swelling after various acute neurologic injuries.
