Lucia Barcella (27/05/1990) postgraduate student in Clinical Pathology at the University of Calabria (Arcavacata di Rende, Calabria, Italy). I attend the Department of Microbiology and Virology of Bianchi Melacrino Morelli Hospital of Reggio Calabria (Calabria, Italy) as voluntary biologist from 2014. I’m involved in the writing and publication of scientific papers about clinical pathology and microbiology, such as:- Colonial morphology of Escherichia coli: impact of detection in clinical specimens. Barcella L, Barbaro AP, Rogolino SB. Department of Microbiology, Bianchi Melacrino Morelli Hospital, Reggio Calabria, Italy. Pagepress, Microbiologia Medica 2016; 31:5636 [doi:10.4081/mm.2016.5636] - The intestinal mycobiota: a year of observation about the incidence of yeast's isolation in fecal samples. Barcella L, Rogolino SB, Barbaro AP. Minerva Gastroenterol Dietol. 2017 Feb 1. [doi: 10.23736/S1121-421X.17.02330-3] I graduated in Biology (110 cum laude) in October 2013 at the University of Messina (Sicilia, Italy), and I have been enabled to practice as a biologist in February 2014. Technical expertise in clinical microbiology, particularly bacteriological and mycological diagnosis, such as microscopic observation, simple and differential staining (such as Gram stain and Ziehl-Neelsen stain), culture of clinical specimens (such as urine culture, stool culture, blood culture), culture of microorganisms (in solid or liquid mediums), identification of microorganisms (based on their macroscopic, microscopic, biochemical, antigenic and molecular properties), antimicrobial susceptibility testing, cell count (such as blood/urine cells count), serological diagnosis.
Lucia Barcella Research Interests are Diagnostic and Medical Microbiology, Bacteriology, Mycology, Hospital Epidemiology, Nosocomial Infections, Infectious Disease Control and Prevention, Microbial Ecology and Isolation, Antimicrobials and antimicrobial resistance, Intestinal Microbiota, Disbiosis.
