Dario Zamboni started his Ph.D. degree in microbiology, immunology, and parasitology at the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil, in 1998, under the supervision of Dr. Michel Rabinovitch. They studied the interaction of intracellular pathogens, such as Coxiella burnetii, with mammalian cells. In 2003, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Craig Roy at the School of Medicine, Yale University, USA, for a full postdoc and was funded by a fellowship from PEW programs in biomedical science. They pursued investigations to understand the innate immune recognition of pathogens by pattern recognition receptors. In 2006, he became an Independent Professor at the Medical School Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, Brazil, where he served as the Head of the Innate Immunity and Microbial Pathogenesis Laboratory. Since then, his group pursues investigations to understand the recognition of intracellular pathogens by pattern recognition receptors and the modulation of host cell functions by these intracellular pathogens.
