Massimo Scanziani earned his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology before pursuing a PhD in Neurophysiology from the University of Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. He completed subsequent postdoctoral research at UCSF and Ecole Superieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles in Paris. Prior to becoming a Professor at UCSF, Dr. Scanziani was a Professor for University of California San Diego and the Brain Research Institute at the University of Zurich.
Dr. Scanziani holds a number of awards including but not limited to a Betty and David Koetser Foundation for Brain Research Award, a NARSAD Distinguished Investigator, as well as being a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator since 2008.
