Hoffmann-La Roche, Basel, Switzerland where she cloned, expressed and characterizes most of the kynurenine pathways enzymes playing roles in stroke and neurodegeneration. Afterwards Dr. Alberati initiated her carrier in Roche Basel starting as pharmacology laboratory head and project leader of Alzheimers disease and schizophrenia programs in early preclinical stages. During more than 15 years she gained experience in pharmaceutical research and development in Neuroscience with 3 new medicinal entities reaching clinical stages (Phase I, II and III) for the treatment of psychiatric diseases. She discovered and developed the only glycine reuptake inhibitor, Bitopertin, reaching phase III for the treatment of negative symptoms in schizophrenia as well as of a PET ligand to understand the relation between Bitopertin brain occupancy and efficacy. In the meanwhile, she supported global strategy group to implement a mechanism of disease campaign for bitopertin medical affair to raise external awareness on negative symptoms of schizophrenia and on the underlying neurobiology/pathophysiology in the psychiatric community (Advisory Boards and International Congresses). She also had the opportunity to manage and lead a unit of sixteen scientists and research associates. Dr. Alberati provided scientific support to several internal programs at both preclinical and clinical stages including rational for indication selection. In the last she focused on the establishment in Roche of a Research and Domain Criteria (RDoC) working group composed by preclinical, clinical and biomarker experts with the goal of implementing this recently National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) launched research approach. In this frame Dr. Alberati identified, in the context of the RDoC approach, translational paradigms and biomarkers to increase target confidence and inform early clinical proof of mechanism studies.
