Antonio Di Pietro received a M.Sc. degree in Biology in 1987 from University of Basel, Switzerland and completed his Ph.D. at the same University in 1990. In 1991/92, he obtained a Swiss National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship to perform a postdoctoral stay in the lab of Gary Harman at Cornell University, USA. After returning to Europe, he joined the Department of Genetics at University of Córdoba, Spain as a postdoc, initially with support from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education (MEC) and then with a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship. In 2000, he and his family spent 5 months in Davis, California, where he was a visiting scientist at Novozymes Biotech. Back in Córdoba, he was awarded a Ramon y Cajal tenure-track Junior Professorship from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN). In 2005, he became Assistant Professor, in 2007 Associate Professor and in 2010 Full Professor of Genetics at the University of Córdoba. He has been coordinator and participant in several trans-national Marie Curie Training Networks funded by the EU. In 2017, he was elected Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology. Antonio's research interests are in fungal biology and pathology with a focus on the genetic and cellular mechanisms of adaptation and interaction with the host and the environment. In his free time, he loves reading, cooking & eating, hiking, and almost any type of game.
