Maria Luisa MENANDRO (Department of Animal Medicine, Productions and Health, disciplinary field: VET/05 - Microbiology and Infectious Diseases),
Date of birth:20/12/1975.
Place of birth: Este (Padua)
2000 - Veterinary Medicine Degree and Doctor in Veterinary Medicine (DVM), Veterinary Medicine Faculty, University of Padua (Italy).
2004 - “Doctor in Philosophy” (PhD) in Animal Medicine.
2004 - Research activity for the Microbiology and Infectious Diseases area of Veterinary Medicine faculty, University of Padua.
2005 - Researcher at the Veterinary Medicine Faculty (Scientific-disciplinary field: VET/05 - Microbiology and Infectious Diseases), University of Padua.
2007 - Specialization degree in Food Hygiene (University of Padua).
2008 - Confirmed Researcher at the Veterinary Medicine Faculty (Scientific-disciplinary field: VET/05 - Microbiology and Infectious Diseases), University of Padua.
Since November 2000, she is involved in research activity in the Microbiology and Infectious Diseases area. The research is primarily focused on survey, diagnosis of animal infectious diseases, and molecular characterization of zoonotic microorganisms and tick-borne pathogens. She is also involved in studies on phenotypic and genetic antimicrobial resistance profiles of bacteria isolated from pets.
Since 2005 she performs diagnostic activity for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases area.
Since 2010 she is staff member of the University Teaching Veterinary Hospital (OVUD). In this regard, she is involved in bacteriological identification, performing of drug susceptibility testing and serological testing.

2008/2009; from 2010/2011 until now: course of " Veterinary Bacteriology and Virology" at the Veterinary Medicine Degree Course and at the Food Safety and Hygiene Degree Course, University of Padua.

Research areas
Dal novembre 2000 ha partecipato all’attività di ricerca dell’Area di Microbiologia e Malattie infettive del Dipartimento di Sanità Pubblica, Patologia Comparata ed Igiene Veterinaria dell’Università degli Studi di Padova, area facente parte dal 2012 del Dipartimento di Medicina Animale , Produzioni e Salute. Durante l'attività di ricerca si è interessata in particolare dello studio epidemiologico dei principali agenti zoonosici trasmessi da vettori e dello studio dei profili di antibiotico-resistenza in batteri isolati da animali.
