Professional profile

Giandomenico Pozza graduated in Veterinary Medicine and holds a post-graduate diploma in Inspection of Food of Animal Origin. He is a veterinarian at the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie and is Head of the Sample Reception and Public Relations Laboratory, which includes the Sample reception service and “Support for laboratory logistics” task group which, inter alia, is in charge of managing the BSL3 laboratory (Bio-Safety Level 3).

The main research interests concern the management of samples and related data, the organization of the laboratory, the biosafety and the social epidemiology. He has been scientific advisor of some research projects funded by the Italian Ministry of Health, i.e.: RC IZSVe 16/09 – Communication of risk related to food consumption: analysis of data and metadata in samples for microbiological control; RC IZSVe 09/12 – Monitoring of TAT (Turnaround time) as a tool to improve the overall efficiency of the laboratory; RC VE 07/15 – Development of a training strategy aimed at increasing the awareness of veterinarians and breeders on the correct use of antibiotics in the farm.

His main fields of activity concern the management of samples (handling, labelling, tracking, and temperature monitoring) according to safety and security procedures and, finally, data management (electronic management systems for controlling and tracking samples).

Alongside the Laboratory Logistics support Unit he is responsible for organizing and managing the BSL3 laboratory to be at the service of the Institute’s researchers, and for designing a centralized sample repository.
