Professional profile

Monia Cocchi is a veterinarian, head of the diagnostic service of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie’s (IZSVe) peripheral laboratory of Udine. She is mainly involved in research activities on microbiology (i.e. antimicrobial resistance and biofilm formation).

After the degree in Veterinary Medicine at the Bologna University, here she has attended a the three-year Postgraduate School of  “Animal Health, Breeding and Productions”, and, in 2007, she has attended the tree-year Postgraduate School in “Animal Health, Hygiene and pathology of aquatic species and hygiene of fish products” at the Udine University. Currently, she is attending a II level Master degree course in Dairy Production Medicine at the University of Perugia,

Her research interests cover microbiology  and  pathology of bovine and pet species. Her research activity focuses on bacteriological diseases both of large and small animals and antimicrobial resistance studies of some veterinary pathogens with particular interest in bovine mastitis and diseases of pets. In addition, she is studying pathogens in vitro biofilm formation and the antimicrobial concentration eradicating biofilm formation.
