Books

”Tratat de Bacteriologie Medical-Veterinară și Introducere în Micologie”/ ”Treaty of Bacteriology and Introduction in Micology” (SIMONA IVANA), Published in Medical Sciences Publishing House, Bucharest, 2006, 768 pages. This book was awarded by the Romanian Academy on December, 18, 2008, with ”Traian Săvulescu” Prize.

”General Microbiology”, Plasticine Collection, in Indigo Royal Publishing House, (Coordinator: SIMONA IVANA), 2018, ISBN: 978-606-94157-3-3.

Is an innovative book, very representative for her didactic activity in the field of Microbiology. Each course begins with a learning objective and key points, and a brief characterization of a microorganism to arouse curiosity in the field of Special Microbiology. This encourages students to develop an ever-expanding background of knowledge and improves their ability to understand increasingly sophisticated subjects. The text is organized into 15 courses grouped into informal units of information. Because visual and mental figures can be extremely helpful in understanding a process, structure, or abstraction, she have tried to develop an unique approach using plasticine technique. Each course opens with picture (animated plasticine microorganism) that focuses interest on one of the thought-provoking subjects about bacteria, viruses or molds.
