Dr. Tarro has been engaged in medical research for over 30 years. He was born on July 9, 1938, in Messina, Sicily, where he attended High School, and in 1956 began his medical studies at Messina University and then in 1960 continued at Naples University from which he received his M.D. His research work began in 1960 in the virology laboratory of the Department of Medical Pathology at the University of Naples and continued during the entire period of his medical studies. In I963 and 1964 he was at the Polyclinic of the University of Naples receiving training in pathology, neurology and internal medicine. In 1965 he went to the Children's Hospital Research Foundation at the University of Cincinnati, where he worked with Dr. Albert B. Sabin as a Research associate for three years and, subsequently, in 1968 and 1969 he was Assistant Professor of Research Pediatrics at the same University. He is the president of Foundation de Beaumont Bonelli for Cancer Research.
His basic researches have been concerned with antigens induced early during the replication cycle of human herpesviruses. Another study has involved the identification, isolation, and characterization of specific virus-induced tumour antigens, which were the “fingerprints”, left behind in human cancer. Achievements include patents in field; discovery of Respiratory Syncytial Virus in infant deaths in Naples and of tumor liberated protein as a tumor-associated antigen, 55 kilodalton protein overexpressed in lung tumors and other epithelial adenocarcinomas.
