He is head of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Fondazione IRCCS Ca’Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico. Andrea works in the immunopathogenesis of viral and bacterial infections and in mechanisms of interaction between the pathogens and the host focusing in how to translate information learned from pathogenetic studies into the clinic. His research activities focuses on human T cell phenotypic and functional analysis, T cell activation, and in the mechanisms of immune reconstitution and microbiota interaction. He directs several research programs dedicated to the investigation of the immunopathogenesis of antiretroviral-treated HIV infection. Andrea is involved in educational projects on antimicrobial stewardship developing a significant experience in managing epidemiological and clinical aspect of AMR infections. As a PI he has performed numerous studies participating in international projects to improve the quality of care for patients affected by infectious diseases.

Study Director Maarten van Dongen is originally a molecular & medical microbiologist. After his PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, he has worked for the international pharma and biopharma industry in The Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland and Belgium. Later he advised Netherlands and international public and private organizations in the domain of Life Sciences. As an advisor Maarten was increasingly asked to lead large projects in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In 2015, he was asked by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports to design a national collaborative structure for the development of new antibiotics. In 2016, together with 12 Dutch organisations, he explored the potential of a new to set up a global information platform on AMR. In 2017 he founded AMR Insights and decided to focus his professional activities on combating the global threat of AMR. AMR Insights informs, educates and connects professionals with the aim to curb Antimicrobial resistance. AMR Insights has the ambition to develop into a global information platform on Antimicrobial resistance. Maarten is committed to eliminating antimicrobial resistance because he does not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms.
