Matteo Bonato, Ph.D.


Matteo Bonato received the Master Degree in Sport Science in 2012 and the Doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Sport Science in 2015, both from Università degli Studi di Milano. He has expertise in exercise physiology and sport science with particular reference to exercise training in pathological population. During his Ph.D. at the Università degli Studi di Milano collaborates with IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute in a pilot study to assess the effects of moderate intensity exercise on metabolic and inflammatory markers in HIV-infected persons. Furthermore, during the post-doc at Università degli Studi di Milano conducted a randomized controlled trial in collaboration with IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute for assess the effects of aerobic exercise with the support of a smartphone application in physical fitness, metabolic and psychologic parameters in people living with HIV. Actually, he is a researcher at Laboratory of Movement & Sport Science (LAMSS), for studying the effects of a home-based resistance training to counteract sarcopenia in elderly people. Matteo is also a track & field coach of middle-distance athletic disciplines.
