Short Bio

Prof. Marco Rinaldo Oggioni is an expert in bacterial genetics and pathogenesis of infection. MRO has worked as Consultant Microbiologist for 20 years at the University Hospital in Siena (Italy), joined as Professor of Microbial Genetics in 2013 the University of Leicester (UK) and is since 2020 Professor at FaBiT at the University of Bologna (Italy).

MROs main area of research interest are the molecular mechanisms involved in the interaction of bacterial pathogens with their environment - the human host - by use of genomic tools and the study of microbial physiology. Most recent contributions were the identification of epigenetic control of bacterial gene expression and the identification of bacterial replication within a subset of tissue macrophages prior to invasive disease. Additional interests include investigation into the molecular determinants of antimicrobial drug resistance and mechanisms governing mobile genetic elements.
