Professional profile

Guido Di Martino is veterinary researcher in the Epidemiological surveillance, veterinary legislation and animal welfare unit – SCS4 Epidemiology at IZSVe.

He has a degree in Veterinary medicine (University of Padua, 2008) and holds postgraduate degree in Pathology and technology of poultry, rabbit and game (University of Milan, 2011) and a Master of Science in Animal Welfare (University of Northampton, 2013).

In the year 2008-2009 he worked for the Department of Animal Science of the University of Padua within the research project “Relationship between milk protein loci, ratio between protein fractions and milk dynamographic parameters of cow milk”.

He has been working at IZSVe since 2009, being involved in 10 animal welfare projects by means of research temporary contracts.

Since 2015, he has been working at the “Epidemiological surveillance, veterinary legislation and animal welfare” unit – SCS4 Epidemiology at IZSVe in the coordination of two research projects on animal welfare.

His main activities focused on designing and carrying out research projects on animal welfare in livestock, with particular reference to physiological and behavioural indicators of stress.

He has been involved in 10 national research projects, whose results have been presented in several national and international congresses.

He is author and co-author of 38 publications including peer-reviewed journals, national journals, chapters of books, national and international conference proceedings.
