In recent years, the attention of the scientific and social community has not solely been on producing new findings, but increasingly also on the related issues of the reliability, safety, and efficacy of the discoveries made, as well as the efficient and effective use of resources. The adoption of management models and tools can help scientists to improve their research, ensuring valuable, robust and dependable outcomes. Quality disciplines have been widely used for decades in industrial and business fields, building a knowledge base that can be translated and exploited, much to the advantage of scientific research. However, quality references in scientific research are still extremely rare and largely limited to an international guideline and a few sector-specific standards. Despite WHO and EU Commission campaigns, there are still precious few practical texts that offer researchers guidance on quality principles and provide simple tools and methodologies for their daily work.

The book, starting from the problem of the reproducibility of scientific results and the substantial contribution that the Quality approach can make to research (Chapter 1), introduces the reader to key principles and basic concepts of Quality and illustrates both general and research-specific quality standards, paving the way for further discussion (Chapter 2). In turn, Chapter 3 presents detailed applications of Quality principles in various aspects of research, from study and ethics to materials and equipment management. Chapters 4 and 5, respectively, are devoted to Quality tools and Quality methodologies, as well as soft skills, all of which are valuable to scientific experimentation and study management. The concepts and practical tools discussed are extensively illustrated with examples from actual applications in scientific research.

Antonella Lanati previously worked at ST Microelectronics (1984-1988) and later at Magneti Marelli (1989-2003), reaching the role of Quality Manager of the Business Systems Unit (Powertrain Division). Since November 2003 (and as owner of "Valore Qualità" since 2009), she has been working as self-employed professional consultant for Organization and Management Systems, focusing her activity in academia (San Raffaele University), and scientific research organizations (including the San Raffaele Scientific Institute and several departments of the Italian National Research Council).

She is Adjunct Professor at the School of Medicine of the San Raffaele University, teaching, first in the Degree Course in Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and currently in the MD Course in Medical Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology. She also organizes courses for postgraduates in research quality and management (PhD course in Molecular Medicine, San Raffaele University; PON BioForIU, PON Biosciences and Health, IVASCOMAR Project/Alisei Cluster, etc.). She is a member of the RQA (Research Quality Association) and of the Study Group "Biological medical products and medicines for advanced therapies" at the AFI (Association of Pharmaceutical Industry). She has authored a book (ed. Springer) and contributed several scientific papers in peer reviewed journals and publications (ed. Springer, Tecniche Nuove) as well as science popularisation articles, in the field of Quality Management and methodologies in scientific research.
