Dr Giuseppe Paparella
I am Policy Officer in the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R) scientific secretariat. In my role I contribute to the implementation of the strategy as defined by the GloPID-R members. Strategic themes include data sharing, clinical research innovation and regulatory developments, social science aspects, access to medicine and R&D priorities and pipelines. As part of my role, I perform analyses and needs assessment, and identify gaps in knowledge and response capacity that inhibit effective rapid research responses. In this professional context, I have contributed to ground-breaking reports, such as the GloPID-R report on COVID-19 Research Recommendations & Considerations for 2021-2023, and to the organisation of conferences and meetings, including the COVID-19 Research Synergies Meetings and the Long COVID Research Forum.
I obtained a PhD in Security Studies from King’s College London in April 2021, and a MSc in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2012. Before to join GloPID-R, I have worked in communications and project management in ISARIC, and as a policy officer at Picker Institute.
