Giampietro Corradin graduated in chemistry at the University of Padua and received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara, after completion of a thesis on the structure and function of cytochrome c. After a postdoctoral position in biochemistry at Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, NH, he continued his training in molecular immunology at the National Jewish Hospital, Denver, Colo, USA. He joined the Institute of Biochemistry in 1979, where he is an Associate Professor. For the last 15 years, the main focus of his laboratory has been the elucidation of the immunological mechanisms of protection in malaria using well-defined animal models. In addition, development of vaccine candidates has been actively pursued by introducing new and faster approaches for the identification, production, and development of novel malaria vaccine candidates.
