GT1Giulio Tarro教授被任命为疫苗研究与开发(VRD)的主编,这是由Whioce Publishing Pte。出版的国际同行评审的开放获取期刊。有限公司

Tarro博士从事医学研究已超过30年。他于1938年7月9日出生在西西里岛的墨西拿,在那里上高中,并于1956年在墨西拿大学开始他的医学研究,然后在1960年在那不勒斯大学继续他从1962年获得他的医学博士“以优异成绩” 1972年担任肿瘤病毒学教授。

他的研究工作于1960年在那不勒斯大学医学病理学系的病毒学实验室开始,并在整个医学研究期间继续进行。在I963和1964年,他在那不勒斯大学的综合医院接受病理学,神经病学和内科学的培训。1965年,他去了辛辛那提大学儿童医院研究基金会,在那里他与Albert B. Sabin博士一起担任研究助理三年,随后在1968年和1969年担任研究儿科助理教授。大学。从那里,Tarro博士回到那不勒斯,并在国家癌症研究所(美国)的研究合同的帮助下,在传染病医院建立了病毒学实验室。1973年,Tarro博士在弗雷德里克癌症研究中心担任高级科学家,当时他是国家癌症研究所的特别顾问Albert Sabin博士。他最着名的工作为疱疹病毒与子宫颈癌的关联提供了实验证据。虽然起初有争议,但这项工作已经由几个实验室使用不同的技术进行。

Tarro博士在病毒学方面的研究既是基础性的,也是面向任务的。他的基础研究一直关注单纯疱疹病毒(HSV)复制周期早期诱导的抗原。在患有头部,颈部和泌尿生殖道的某些癌症的患者的血清中通过酶联免疫吸附测定法检测特异性抗体。他的任务导向研究涉及各种传染病的许多方面,包括支气管肺炎,脑炎,霍乱和由不同病毒引起的疾病。

During 1979 he was engaged in research on an epidemic disease in Naples called the “dark disease”. Dr Tarro isolated the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and found antibody evidence that this virus was behind the epidemic. The World Health Organization expert were called in and agreed most cases of disease were caused by RSV. In 1981 he suggested the proper use of interferon to cure the cytomegalovirus infection affecting the pope John Paul the second who underwent long surgical operation and received huge blood transfusion after the killing attempt.

Dr Tarro is currently engaged in scientific research related to the separation and identification of tumour antigens present on cell membranes and their potential value in immunotherapy for cancer. He has shown that specific soluble antigens may be used in various tests for a further understanding of their role in various cancer systems. Another study has involved the identification, isolation and characterization of specific virus-induced tumour antigens, which were the “finger-prints” left behind in tumours induced in man by human herpes viruses. Intramural activities have included being director of thesis and research  for many candidates; director of medical research fellowships for medical  students; participation in research planning for clinical colleagues; teaching  virology, oncology and immunology to medical and graduate students.

He is on the editorial board of various Italian medical journals. Dr Tarro has been elected to membership of many academies and societies. He has also been the recipient of many awards and honours.  Dr Tarro is life president of the T. and L. de Beaumont Bonelli Foundation for Cancer Research officially recognized by Italian presidential decree n. 36 of January 3, 1978. The aim of the Foundation is the promotion of scientific research on cancer and was instituted thanks to the generous donation of the late Teresa Berger who left to the foundation a large part of her patrimony, whereas the late husband, the Earl Luigi de Beaumont Bonelli, left most of his patrimony to the Nobel foundation.

Tarro博士成为病毒学部门主任(1973-2003),然后是那不勒斯D. Cotugno传染病医院诊断实验室(2003-2006)部门主任; 荣誉退休,2006年。他是HCV患者体外热疗的科学协调员,First Circle Medicine,Minneapolis(2000-2003)。自2007年以来,他担任联合国教科文组织生物技术和VirusSphere World Academy生物医学技术主席委员会成员,以及美国费城坦普尔大学科学与技术学院兼职教授。
