The group led by Prof. Claudio Bandi focuses on two main topics, the infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria, and some neglected parasitic and vector-borne diseases, with a particular attention for infections of pediatric interest.
Two microbiologists, two bioinformaticians, two parasitologists, a molecular biologist, and a mathematician compose this multidisciplinary team.
The group is setting up an innovative platform for genomic epidemiology (UNIMI Sky Net), based on biomolecular, computational and genomic tools, which will help to detect and control epidemic outbreaks, with a particular focus on nosocomial infections. Other projects have the objectives of developing a novel bacterial vaccine vehicle, of discovering microbial proteins with antigenic and immune-modulatory properties, of determining the role of the microbiota in immune-mediated pathologies in children.
WHAT SERVICE DO WE OFFER?
The group can provide full support to the characterization of microorganisms and to epidemiological reconstructions, through the application of genomic, bioinformatics and computational tools.
The know-how of the group allows to: conduct genomic comparisons and phylogenomic analyses; investigate the microbiota, both through amplicon-based and shotgun metagenomics approaches; produce and characterize recombinant proteins. The group relies on two NGS machines (Illumina NextSq and MiSeq).

Your support will contribute to: avoid that the efficacy of antibiotics is lost; preserve and increase our capacity to cure bacterial infections; control the diffusion of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the hospitals and the environment, making the hospital a safe place for children, and limiting the “environmental pollution” by antibiotic resistant bacteria; the development of novel strategies for the control of neglected parasitic and vector-borne diseases of children.
