Professional profile

Eva Mazzetto is a veterinarian working at the Special Virology Laboratory (SCS6 – Experimental Virology Department) of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe).

She graduated in Veterinary Medicine in 2015 at the University of Padua. In 2019, she obtained the Specialization degree in Animal Health, Breeding and Zootechnical Production at the University of Milan. In 2022, she completed the PhD program in Medicine and Surgery at the Department of Women’s and Child Health of the University of Padua.

Between 2016 and 2019, she worked as a researcher at the Special Virology Laboratory (SCS6). From 2020 to 2022, she worked as a collaborator at the Penta ONLUS Pediatric Foundation. Since May 2022, she has been working at the Special Virology Laboratory (SCS6) of IZSVe, where her main task is the characterization of the viral phenotype of emerging or re-emerging viruses, using in-vivo, in-vitro and ex-vivo models with a high translational value. Over the years, she has become experienced in the pathogenesis of influenza A and D viruses, Newcastle disease virus, Zika flavivirus and Sars-Cov-2 virus, responsible for the COVID- 19 pandemic.

Currently, her main research interests are the development and validation of alternative and innovative substrates, to study the viral infectious diseases of animals, including those with a zoonotic potential for humans.
