Projects per year
Dr. Andrea Di Pietro is a Research Fellow in the B Cells and Antibody Memory Laboratory (Clayton Monash University) headed by Dr. Kim Good-Jacobson. His research is directed to dissect the antagonistic networks involved in the formation and regulation of humoral responses upon viral infections.
Dr Di Pietro was trained in Molecular and Cellular Medical Biotechnology at Universitandagrave; Vita-Salute San Raffaele (Milan, Italy), graduating in 2008. After a brief period as Postgraduate Fellow, in 2011 he was awarded with a scholarship to commence a PhD with Dr. Elisa Vicenzi at San Raffaele Scientific Institute (Milan, Italy), where he revealed a novel role of TRIM22 protein as antiviral factor of the innate immunity against influenza viruses. After he received his PhD in 2014, he moved to Australia to undertake a postdoctoral position in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Monash University.
