Dr Valeria Ricotti
Dr Valeria Ricotti profile picture
  • Honorary Clinical Lecturer
  • Developmental Neurosciences Dept
  • UCL GOS Institute of Child Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

Originally from Italy, I graduated with honours from RCSI, Ireland. I completed my core paediatric training in Dublin and in 2010 I joined the Dubowitz Neuromuscular Centre, at the UCL Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

I am a dedicated clinical researcher, having contributed to the development of novel advanced therapies, biomarkers and international natural history registries. I have for many years been interested in the health applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning in a collaboration with NIHR BRCs at UCL and Imperial College London, which yielded two papers in Nature Medicine.

In 2019 I co-founded Dinaqor AG, a Swiss gene therapy company, where until 2022 I was responsible for the company‚Äôs overall scientific strategy with a focus on the translational activities, which included a lead compound now in IND- enabling studies plus a pipeline of three other gene therapy products. 

I hold a higher degree from UCL. I am co-inventor of five patents. 

I am co-founder and director of three UK- based start-ups.
