The list of awards and apical positions attests to Prof. Mondelli’s leading ability and prestige.
His research activity over the years has been characterized by a strong personal involvement in laboratory science (molecular virology and immunology in particular), together with clinical management of patients, moving from bench to bedside and back again. Prof. Mondelli has a longstanding tradition of clinical and translational research on viral hepatitis which is evident from several research articles published in the field. His scientific production is available at http://scholar.google.it/citations?user=JzUMPl4AAAAJ.
He is listed as co-inventor in a patent of a human monoclonal antibody to the HCV NS3 helicase/NTPase domain. Additional research interests include the role of innate immunity in the control of HBV and HCV, the NK cell receptor dynamic profiles as biomarkers of response to antiviral therapy, and the production of neutralizing human monoclonal antibodies specific for HBV.
