Dr. Carlo Paribello

M.S.M., M.D
Medical Director at The Elm Grove Living Centre
Brampton, Ontario, Canada

Dr. Carlo Paribello is a family physician and has been practicing medicine in Ontario since 1986. He is in private practice in Brampton, Ontario, and is an attending physician and the Medical Director at The Elm Grove Living Centre in Toronto. Dr. Paribello, along with his wife Barbara, established the Fragile X Research Foundation of Canada (FXRFC) in 1997, two years after two of their four young sons were diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome. The Fragile X Research Foundation of Canada is a non-profit organization which is dedicated to funding biomedical research for improved treatment and, ultimately, a cure for fragile X.

In 2003, Dr. Paribello was one of 30 outstanding Canadians honoured by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson with the Meritorious Service Medal (M.S.M.). The M.S.M. is conferred on “individuals who have performed an exceptional deed or an activity that has brought honour to their community or to Canada.” To quote the award’s official citation, Dr. Paribello’s accomplishments “has brought international recognition to Canada and to the tremendous strides Canadian researchers are making in the field of genetic research.”

In 2006, Dr. Paribello started the first dedicated Fragile X Clinic at Surrey Place Centre in Toronto. The clinic served to provide a facility where affected patients and their families could access physicians with the expertise and knowledge to treat this neuropsychiatric disorder. It also became the first Canadian centre to conduct clinical trials with new drugs aimed at enhancing learning, memory and cognitive functioning.

In 2010, Dr. Paribello made a significant contribution to the field of neuroscience and autism when he published the positive results of his ground-breaking open-label trial using minocycline as a possible targeted molecular therapy to treat Fragile X.

In 2012 Dr. Paribello moved the Fragile X clinic to his office in Brampton, and began conducting clinical drug trials for Novartis and Roche Pharmaceuticals in order to test potential new treatments for Fragile X.
