Marco Schieppati received the Degree in Medicine at the University of Milan and became Specialist in Neurology at the University of Pavia, Italy. He has served as Associate Professor of Human Physiology at the University Medical School of Milan, and Professor of Physiology at the University Medical Schools of Genova and Pavia. Has been Invited Professor at the Department of Rehabilitation of the Dijon University and at the UFR STAPS of the Université d´Orsay. Presently, he is Professor of Physiology at the Department of Exercise & Sport Science at the LUNEX International University of Health, Exercise and Sports, Luxembourg.

Has been member of evaluation committees for: Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS); French National Research Agency (ANR); Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM); Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR); ANVUR (Italian Universities Evaluation Agency); Swiss Research Council; Swiss National Science Foundation; University Grants Committee (Hong Kong); University of Indiana at Bloomington, USA; Medical Research Council, UK; Wellcome Trust, UK; University College London, UK.

Has been Editorial Board Member of Clinical Neurophysiology (up to 2005); Human Movement Science, Section Editor (up to 2013); Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology (2000-present); Frontiers in Neurology (Movement Disorders) (2016-present). Has served as Guest reviewer for several Journals, including Acta Otolaryngologica; American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; Brain; Brain Research; Brain Research Bulletin; Cerebral Cortex; Clinical Neurophysiology / Neurophysiologie Clinique; Clinical Neurophysiology (formerly Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology); European Journal of Applied Physiology; European Journal of Neuroscience; Experimental Brain Research; Functional Neurology; Frontiers in Neurology; Frontiers in Neuroscience; Gait & Posture; Human Movement Science; Intensive Care Medicine; IEEE Transaction Biomedical Engineering; Journal of Applied Biomechanics; Journal of Applied Physiology; Journal Electromyography and Kinesiology; Journal of Neurology; Journal of Neurophysiology; Journal of Physiology (London); Journal of Vestibular Research; Movement Disorders; Muscle & Nerve; Neuroscience Letters; Research into Ageing; Science et Motricité.

He has participated in more than 30 committees for the evaluation of Doctoral Dissertations.

His research activities have been mainly in the fields of human motor neuroscience and movement disorders. The research strategy has been to study in parallel both healthy and diseased motor systems allowing cross-fertilization between the two areas. The inventions of novel experimental protocols have revealed neural mechanisms in healthy subjects. These methods have then been applied to patients with movement disorders to demonstrate pathophysiological mechanisms. Information has flowed in the opposite direction by studying patients with well-defined central nervous system lesions to test hypotheses regarding the healthy motor system. Recent topics of interest have been Modulation of spinal reflexes, Control of muscle action, Control of balance, Pathophysiology of sensorimotor processes, Whole-body control mechanisms, Locomotion, Sensory integration processes, Innovative methods in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
