Dr. Serggio Lanata is a neurologist who cares for patients with cognitive impairment.
Lanata's research focuses on improving treatment for Alzheimer's disease in underserved and underrepresented communities. He studies how social determinants of health — factors such as income level and traumatic life experiences — affect brain health and cognition. The goal is to identify risks factors that lead to cognitive decline.
After completing a biological sciences program at the Universidad Ricardo Palma in Lima, Peru, Lanata earned his bachelor's degree in food science and human nutrition at the University of Florida. He then earned a master's degree in physiology, complementary and alternative medicine at Georgetown University before earning his medical degree from the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He completed a residency in neurology at Brown University and a fellowship in behavioral neurology at UCSF.
Lanata is a member of the American Academy of Neurology. In his free time, he enjoys surfing and spending time outdoors with his wife and three daughters.
