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 Global Multiple System Atrophy Registry (GLOMSAR). He has been involved in several clinical trials for orthostatic hypotension and multiple system atrophy as well as in the development of biomarkers of disease diagnosis and progression.
His work in genetic autonomic disorders is focused on familial dysautonomia (Riley-Day syndrome) and the other hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathies (HSAN).
