The Ivo de Carneri Foundation was founded in 1994 by the family, colleagues and students of Professor Ivo de Carneri in memory of his life and work. Professor de Carneri was well known for his intellect and generosity, and for his significant contribution to the fight against parasitic and infectious diseases through scientific research, in-field interventions, and educational initiatives for researchers.
The Foundation today is a reliable and transparent organization whose aims are to continue the work of Professor de Carneri, and to intervene quickly in the case of emergencies.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the general management of the Foundation and the Scientific Committee, and for creating scientific and cooperation programs. The Scientific Committee is made up of international experts in the fields of parasitology, infectious diseases, public health and epidemiology.
