Mihai Moldovan

MD, PhD, Assoc. Prof., Founder of ComaEEG.RO

Mihai Moldovan obtained his medical degree from “Carol Davila” University Bucharest in 1999. Based on his research interests as a student, after graduation he was selected to work in the group of prof. Christian Krarup that continues the Copenhagen neurophysiology school founded by prof. Fritz Buchthal in the 60’ with the aim of translating experimental neurophysiology into clinical electrodiagnostic procedures for patients with nerve and muscle disease. Mihai Moldovan obtained his PhD degree in neurophysiology from Copenhagen University in 2004 where he continues his scientific career as associate professor. His research is focused on distinguishing the contribution of voltage-gated ion channel dysfunction to pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders, with particular emphasis on peripheral nerve excitability testing. While based in Copenhagen, Mihai Moldovan continued to collaborate with prof .Leon Zagrean at “Carol Davila” University, Department of Physiology and Neuroscience. In 2011, he founded the COMAEEG.RO international network, bringing together Romanian neuroscientists, clinicians and engineers dedicated to improving the monitoring of the comatose brain excitability. Emerging from these wide research interests are not only original publications and review articles in international journals but also educational chapters in neuroscience and neurophysiology textbooks in Romanian language. Mihai Moldovan has scientific duties in several international organizations including International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and the European Federation of Neuroscience Societies (FENS). He is also founder and acting president of the National Neuroscience Society of Romania (SNN) and founder of the Romanian Society of Electrodiagnostic Neurophysiology (ASNER) for which he now serves as scientific director. For his activity he received several international and national prizes and he was recently appointed editorial board member for Clinical Neurophysiology, the official scientific journal of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN).
