Curriculum Vitae

Since 1994 he has been teaching various courses in General and Pediatric hematology at the School of Pediatrics, at the School of Pediatrics, at the School of Laboratory Medicine and at the School of Hematology at Padua University. His research interest has always dealt with haematological neoplasms of childhood, in particular acute lymphoblastics and acute myeloid leukemias. His field of  work includes all steps of laboratory work-up for diagnosis of leukemias, particularly flow cytometry for immunophanotyping, ploidy and functional studies. He also woeked on mocular biology both in his laboratory and in collaboration with other collegues. Since 1990 he is in charge of the Biological Bank for acute leukemias of the AIEOP (Italian Association for Pediaric Hematology and Oncology) and he is responsible for centralized diagnosis of all cases entering the Italian therapeutic protocols. He is also member of many international committees on pediatric leukemias, solid tumor and hepatoblastomas biology. He is reviewer of International scientific papers as Journal of Clinical Oncology, Blood, Leukemia, Proteomics. He is author of more than 450 peer reviewer publications.  IF = 3.590,96 – H index 75
