Graduated in 2008 (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome). During his studies, he spent one year abroad at University of Salamanca (Spain). He continued his post-graduate training in Rome Catholic University where he obtained residency in Cardiology in 2015. From 2014 to 2015 he was a clinical and research Interventional Fellow in one of the busiest London Hospitals (King’s College Hospital) under the supervision of Professor Phil MacCarthy. From 2015 to 2018 he worked as part of the interventional team of Maria Cecilia Hospital (Cotignola, RA), where he gained a wide experience in complex coronary cases, peripheral interventions (including carotid stenting, aorto-iliac, femoro-popliteal and BTK interventions). In addition, he gained experience in structural interventions (PFO closure, TAVI, left atrial appendage closure) and was in charge of all the structural research program. Dr. Roberto Nerla research interests comprised all aspects of coronary artery disease from endotelial dysfunction to microvascular disease and coronary plaque characterization through advanced imaging (OCT). His main research focus now involves the percutaneous treatment of aortic valve disease and its most complex scenarios (valve-in-valve interventions, bicuspid anatomies, TAVI optimization). He is member of Eurointervention Editorial Board.
