About this book

This book series focuses on current progress in the broad field of medical microbiology, and covers both basic and applied topics related to the study of microbes, their interactions with human and animals, and emerging issues relevant for public health. Original research and review articles present and discuss multidisciplinary findings and developments on various aspects of microbiology, infectious diseases, and their diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

The book series publishes review and original research contributions, short reports as well as guest edited thematic book volumes. All contributions will be published online first and collected in book volumes. There are no publication costs.

Advances in Microbiology, Infectious Diseases and Public Health is a subseries of Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, which has been publishing significant contributions in the field for over 30 years and is indexed in Medline, Scopus, EMBASE, BIOSIS, Biological Abstracts, CSA, Biological Sciences and Living Resources (ASFA-1), and Biological Sciences. 2019 Impact Factor: 2.450.

About the authors

Gianfranco Donelli obtained his master degree in Biological Sciences from the Sapienza University of Rome in 1966. From 1967 onwards he worked as researcher at the Istituto Superiore di SanitĂ  (ISS - Italian National Institute of Health) in Rome in the field of molecular biology and ultrastructure of bacteriophages and human intestinal viruses. In 1975 he was appointed Director of the Electron Microscopy Unit and in 1979 he became the Research Director in molecular biology. In 1982 he founded the Laboratory of Ultrastructures of ISS that has been led by him till 1996. In those years his main research interests covered many aspects of cellular microbiology with special reference to the mechanism of action and the pathogenetic role of toxins and other bacterial virulence factors. He has been invited since 1977 to serve as visiting professor in the Universities of Ancona, Naples, Perugia, Rome and Urbino and in 1999, he was appointed full Professor of Microbiology.In the last two decades Professor Donelli has been appointed Coordinator of the Infectious Diseases Research Project of ISS (1991-1995); Vice-President of the Advisory Committee for Biological and Medical Sciences of the Italian National Research Council (1994 - 1999); International Affairs Officer of the Italian Society of Microbiology and FEMS delegate (2002 - today); President of the Society for Microbial Ecology and Disease (2006 - 2009) and Vice-Chairperson of the Executive Committee of ESCMID Study Group for Biofilms (2009 - 2013). His recent research activity has been mainly focused on biofilm-based healthcare-associated infections and the possible strategies to prevent and counteract the development of microbial biofilms in the human body. Professor Donelli is the author of over 200 full-length papers published in international journals (H-index = 38) and editor of multiple books. Since 2010 he is the Director of the Microbial Biofilm Laboratory at the Fondazione Santa Lucia research hospital in Rome.
