Curriculum vitae

Biographical Notes

Dr. Rossi has 25 years experience in basic and applied research, in the field of human and animal parasitology: helminths, opportunistic protozoa (Cryptosporidium, microsporidia) and malaria parasites.
She worked as associated assistant lecturer at the National Museum of Natural History, Laboratory of Worm Zoology, in Paris, where she carried out studies on morphology, systematic and phylogeny of parasitic nematodes. Then she spent more than 2 years in West Africa, acting as responsible of the entomological laboratory of the “Malaria Control programme in the city of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso”.
In 1986 she joined the Laboratory of Parasitology at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, where she carried out studies on parasite biology and taxonomy, as well as diagnostic and training activities in human parasitology. She organized training courses at the ISS for medical staff working for the national health system, and gave lectures on laboratory diagnosis of human parasitic diseases. At present she is the Quality Assurance manager of the Unit and the CRLP web site responsible.
She published more than 60 papers on international and national scientific journals.
