Salvatore Carbone, Ph.D., obtained his B.S. in nutrition and dietetics at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, then completed a M.S. in cellular and molecular nutrition at University of Urbino Carlo Bo, Italy, and a Ph.D. in molecular medicine and metabolism at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.

His research investigates the role of different dietary interventions and body composition phenotypes on cardiorespiratory fitness and energy metabolism in patients with obesity and heart failure, with a focus on heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. To complete this project, he has received an American Heart Association Career Development Award (2019-22).

He is also investigating the effect of glucose-lowering agents such as sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors on cardiorespiratory fitness in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, for which he has received an American Heart Association Mentored Clinical and Population Research Award (2016-2018).
