Fulvio Esposito was born in Viareggio (Italy) in 1951, he is a Full Professor of parasitology at University of Camerino (UNICAM) since 1987, and he developed his scientific background in Pisa University and Scuola Normale Superiore, where he obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biology, respectively. His scientific contributions on various aspects of malaria include immunology and immunotechniques, epidemiology and control, parasitology, and entomology. The results he obtained with insecticide-treated netting on child mortality prompted the World Health Organization to adopt and promote this malaria control strategy in endemic countries, particularly in Africa. Esposito is the Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology since 1998, and in 2004 he was elected as Rector of UNICAM and reelected for a second mandate in 2007. He resigned since November 1, 2011. He is collaborating with the European Commission on subjects related to researchers (e.g. the European Charter for Researchers, the European Partnership for Researchers, and the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers) and research (e.g. Innovation Union Flagship Initiative). He is chairing the Steering Group on Human Resources and Mobility and represents Italy in the High level Group on Joint Programming of European Research (GPC).
