Research Coordinator, Negri Bergamo Laboratories and the Daccò Centre

Prof. Giuseppe Remuzzi was born in Bergamo, Italy  in 1949. Upon completion of his medical training at the University of Pavia in 1974, he received specialty training in Hematology and Nephrology  at the University of Milan.
Since 1975, he has pursued his academic career at the Ospedali Riuniti of Bergamo, where he was appointed Professor of Nephrology and Director of the Department of Medicine and Transplantation in 1996. Since 1999, he is Director of the Department of Nephrology and Dialysis of the same hospital. The Negri Bergamo Laboratories, which he has directed since 1984, is a group of basic scientists, physiologists, pharmacologists, molecular and cellular biologists, pathologists and clinicians devoted to the study of renal disease. As Research Coordinator of the Negri Bergamo Laboratories and the affiliated Clinical Research Center for Rare Diseases "Aldo  e Cele Dacco", both divisions of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research,  he conduct a diverse team of researchers studying human renal diseases and their corresponding experimental models from the perspective of pathophysiology and therapeutic intervention. He touched major advances in many areas of nephrology, with particular focus on platelet endothelial interactions, vascular prostaglandin biology, coagulation and renal disease, progression of renal disease, experimental models of glomerular damage, and transplant immunology and tolerance. Particularly his contributions to the understanding of the pathophysiology of hemolytic uremic syndrome, prostaglandin metabolism in pregnancy, renal vascular biology in uremia, the role of protein trafficking in renal disease progression, the induction of graft tolerance by intrathymic injection of donor antigens, the role of the co-stimulatory CD28-B67 pathway in transplant rejection and the prevention of renal and cardiovascular damage in diabetes.

Prof. Remuzzi serves on editorial boards of numerous journals including the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine and is member of the International Advisory Board of The Lancet.

In recognition of his achievements, he has been awarded in 1998 honorary memberships of the Association of American Physicians and the British Royal College of Physicians. In 2001 he was nominated Chairman of the Research Committee of the COMGAN (Commission on Global Advancement of Nephrology) of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN). He received an Honorary Professorship at the University of Maastricht in 2003. 
In 2005 during the World Congress of Nephrology in Singapore  he received the ISN Jean Hamburger Award and in November 2007 he received during the annual congress of the American Society of Nephrology the precious John P. Peters Award.

Prof. Remuzzi has authored and co-authored more than 885 scientific articles, reviews and monographs.
