Iacopo Chiodini’s research career commenced in 1994, since which he has largely focused on the influence of endocrine disorders on bone metabolism, particularly in relation to overt and subclinical hypercortisolism. He is currently focusing on the diagnosis and therapy of subclinical hypercortisolism, the role of cortisol secretion in hypertension, diabetes and osteoporosis, and the involvement of bone in metabolic syndrome.

Iacopo Chiodini is co-author of more than 170 peer-reviewed papers (Scopus h-index 44). He has coordinated several studies on the effects of subclinical hypercortisolism in patients with adrenal incidentalomas, the role of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and individual sensitivity to glucocorticoid excess in patients with diabetes and osteoporosis, as well as the effects of conservative or surgical approaches to treatment in patients with mild hypercortisolism. He is currently involved with several drug-development trials for the treatment of both overt and subclinical hypercortisolism and is a member of advisory boards that focus on hypercortisolism screening in high-risk populations.
