Valeria MICHELACCI (Genomic Biotechnologist)

Scientist working at the EU Reference Laboratory for E. coli, she has achieved her PhD degree after three years of research activity at the EU-RL on the topic “Identification and functional analysis of virulence determinants of Verocytotoxin-producing E. coli”. During this period, she has performed scientific missions in several outstanding laboratories involved in research on Diarrhoeagenic E. coli, comprising the Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen (DK), the ANSES in Paris (FR) and the United States Department of Agriculture in Philadelphia (PA, USA). Part of her PhD thesis has been published in some peer-reviewed scientific journals.
She has been enrolled for three months at the Public Health England in Colindale (UK), formerly Health Protection Agency, as a Bioinformatician in duty of analyzing next-generation sequencing (NGS) data from pathogenic E. coli.
Her duties at the EU-RL VTEC comprise the collaboration in the preparation of samples for the annual Proficiency Tests and the development of methods for the detection and typing of pathogenic E. coli., comprising the development of bioinformatics workflows for the analysis of NGS data and the compiling of databases of reference sequences. Moreover, she is involved in the conduction of training sessions on the identification and characterization of the different groups of pathogenic E. coli and on the bioinformatics analysis of NGS data.
She is a member of the ECDC working group on the Introduction of next generation typing methods for Food- and Waterborne diseases.
