Giorgio Trinchieri - Top Italian Scientist in Biomedical Sciences
Dr. Trinchieri was most recently the Director of the Schering Plough Laboratory for Immunological Research in Dardilly, France, and an NIH Fogarty Scholar at the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases, NIAID. Since August 2006, he has been the Director of the Cancer and Inflammation Program, and Chief of the Laboratory of Experimental Immunology. His research at the CCR focuses on the interplay between inflammation/innate resistance and adaptive immunity, and the role of pro-inflammatory cytokines in the regulation of hematopoiesis, innate resistance, and immunity. He discovered interleukin-12 while at the Wistar Institute in 1989 and for many years has been characterizing the molecular mechanisms of interleukin-12 production and action, and the role of this molecule in tumor immunity, infections, and autoimmunity.
