Professor Franco Bazzoli received his MD degree from the University of Bologna in 1976 and completed his specialty training in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine at the same University in 1980.

After three years as a Research Fellow in Gastroenterology at the University of Pittsburgh, under Professor Hans Fromm, he resumed his research and teaching activities at the University of Bologna.

He was made Assistant Professor in 1987, and Associate Professor of Gastroenterology in 1992. He currently works as a senior assistant and close collaborator of Professor Enrico Roda - Chairman of Gastroenterology and Director of the Department of Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology at the University of Bologna.

His early research activities, in Pittsburgh and Bologna, were centered around the field of hepato-biliary physiology, including the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids and cholesterol gallstone formation and treatment. In more recent years, although still involved in several research projects on gallstone disease, he has expanded his areas of interest to include the following: studying the role of familiarity in increasing the susceptibility to developing premalignant lesions, and also the molecular biology of oncogenes (colon cancer); as a Co-ordinator of the 13C Urea Breath Test and Helicobacter pylori associated Diseases Project at the GI Unit of the Policlinico S. Orsola, he has been guiding various research projects, among which was the first study reporting on short term low-dose triple therapy.

In addition to his teaching duties in the Residency Program in Gastroenterology of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, and in the Postgraduate Specialization Course in Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy, of which he is Director, Professor Franco Bazzoli, as Professor Enrico Roda principal associate, is also acting co-ordinator of the Endoscopy Unit at the Policlinico S. Orsola in Bologna.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
The environment: as a student I attended the Institute of Medicine and Gastroenterology, where Professor Luigi Barbara was Chairman and I prepared my thesis working with Professor Enrico Roda's group.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
In Italy: Professor Enrico Roda. In the United States: Professor Hans Fromm
Which research paper influenced you the most?
I cannot recall one single paper. At the beginning of my career I was definitely influenced by the papers of Alan F. Hoffman on the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids. Also the paper by Robert Logan on the European Standard Protocol for the 13C-urea breath test was fundamental when I started working on this test. The use of one week PPI triple therapy was based on and influenced by a series of paper published in the late eighties and early nineties: these are all listed in my European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology paper (Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 1994; 6(9): 773-777).
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
This question should be answered by others.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To be the best teacher I can be to my young collaborators.
What is your greatest regret?
To have not finished writing the many papers that are still on my desk.
How do you relax?
Running and skiing.
What is your favorite sport?
Running marathons and downhill skiing.
What is your best place in the world?
Home.
What is your favorite film?
Any good thriller.
What car do you drive?
A 1992 Mercedes SW.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My PC.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"The History and Geography of Human Genes" by Luigi Luca Cavalli Sforza.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
Because of my friend Roy.
