Marianne J. Legato
Dr Legato is a renowned cardiologist and internationally recognized expert on 'gender medicine', which takes into account the differences in physiology between masculine and feminine patients.
Throughout her career, she sought to include women in her clinical studies and to analyze data from a gender perspective.
During the Codiv-19 pandemic, for example, she drew attention to the fact that more masculine than feminine samples were used in Covid-19 drugs and vaccines. In fact, insufficient attention was paid to gender in research on the biological differences between masculine and feminine patients.
