Interview to Attilio Losito: my half-century life as a nephrologist in Perugia

Attilio Losito, Giovanni B. Fogazzi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this interview Attilio Losito tells us about his first nephrological experiences gained in the late sixties of the past century in the Institute of Patologia Medica in Perugia directed by Giovanni Gigli, and his subsequent experiences, which also included a period at Guy's Hospital in London. The interview also describes the important contributions that the school of Perugia produced in the field of nephrology and its main protagonists. This nephrological life story highlights: the role that internal medicine, with its multidisciplinary approach, had in the development of nephrology in its beginnings; the importance of cooperation with foreign institutions; the contributions that specialised research laboratories attached to renal units have given to the improvement of the diagnosis and to the understanding of the pathogenesis of nephropathies.
