Grazieli Maboni





I graduated with a degree in Veterinary Medicine, Federal University of Santa Maria (Brazil) in 2011. During my vet school course I worked as a technician for 5 years on bacteriology/mycology research and diagnosis and I received training in microbiology diagnosis in the University of Georgia, USA (6 months).  I obtained a master degree in Veterinary Medicine in the field of Infectious Diseases with a project focused on Antimicrobial Resistance (2013).  I have a particular interest for education and teaching and in 2015, I obtained an Associate Fellowship in the Higher Education Academy (UK). 

My areas of interest are general Veterinary Microbiology/Immunology, Diagnosis of Animal Infectious Diseases, Antimicrobial Resistance and Host-pathogen Interactions.
