Short CV

Michele Perazzolli graduated in Agro-industrial Biotechnology from the University of Verona (Italy) and got a PhD in Molecular Biotechnologies from the University of Piacenza. He focused his research on mechanisms of plant-microbe interactions and induced resistance in crop plants against pathogens. He got a permanent position at the Fondazione Edmund Mach (Italy) and in 2019 he joined the University of Trento (Italy) as an Associate Professor in Plant Physiology. His main recent research interest is focused on the characterization of plant-microbe interactions responsible for plant growth promotion, induction of plant resistance against pathogens, and mitigation of abiotic stresses derived from climate change. Volatile and non-volatile metabolites are studied in plant-microbe and plant-plant communications against pathogens, and plant responses are characterized in response to the colonization of beneficial microbes to clarify mechanisms responsible for abiotic and biotic stress tolerance.

He joined the IOBC in 2007 in the Working Group of Induced Resistance in Plants against Insects and Diseases. In 2017 he organized the meeting of this working group in Riva del Garda (Trento) and since then he has become an active member of the IOBC in all its meetings and activities.
