Andrea Endimiani got a Medical Degree (1999), the Board in Medical Microbiology and Virology (2003), and a PhD in Immunopathology (2007) from the University of Insubria (Varese, Italy). A. Endimiani has been trained in molecular microbiology at the Antibiotic Management Program of University of Pittsburgh (2006-2007) and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland (2007-2010). Currently, he is a Principal Investigator and Medical Microbiologist at the Institute for Infectious Diseases of University of Bern (Switzerland). Endimiani’s group focuses on the genetic background of antibiotic resistant Gram-negative pathogens (particularly those producing ESBLs and/or carbapenemases); they are also very interested in the development of new strategies (e.g., microarrays, multiplex real-time PCRs) to speed up the diagnosis of infections due to multidrug-resistant bacteria and sexually transmitted diseases (mainly those due to Neisseria gonorrhoeae). Dr Endimiani has been qualified as full Professor of Microbiology and Medical Microbiology in 2014 (Italy). He is also Associated Professor of the same topic at the Faculty of Medicine of University of Bern.
My research interests fall broadly within the field of evolutionary and behavioural ecology. I am mostly interested in the evolution of specialisation. Current research topics include i) the evolution of reproductive strategies, ii) the evolution of ecological specialisation and local adaption, and iii) the cost and benefit of information transfer and processing in social interactions. I use both a theoretical approach by means of evolutionary modelling and individual-based simulations, as well as an experimental approach mainly using various insect species as model organisms.

I have a range of interests in community ecology from diversity-ecosystem functioning relationships, the effect of grazing pressure, climate or land use on plant diversity, shrub encroachment, restoration of roadsides and mine sites, or the ecology of biological soil crusts. However, most of my research so far has focused on plant-plant interactions, their biotic and abiotic drivers, and their consequences for plant community assembly.
Tosso Leeb is a veterinary geneticist at the University of Bern. He studies mostly monogenic traits in dogs, cats, horses, pigs, cattle, sheep, and goats. The knowledge of causative variants for hereditary traits can inform us about the function of previously uncharactrerized genes. His research thus exploits the value of domestic animals as models for biomedical research.
