Dr. Rossi is a senior and staff scientist at Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche-Istituto di Scienze dell'Alimentazione (Institute of Food Sciences). Member of the Editorial Board of International Reviews of Immunology (Taylor&Francis, Philadelphia). In 1985 he obtained a degree with honors in Biological Sciences at the University of Naples and then he specialised in General Pathology. From 1989 to 1996 he worked in the laboratories of Proff.
