His most notable work provided experimental evidence for the association of herpesviruses with cancer of the cervix.

Dr. Tarro's researches in Virology have been both basic and mission oriented. His basic researches have been concerned with antigens induced early during the replication cycle of herpes simplex virus (HSV). His mission-oriented research has dealt with many aspects of various infectious diseases including broncho-pneumonia, encephalitis, cholera, and the diseases caused by different viruses. Dr Tarro is currently engaged in scientific research related to the separation and identification of tumour antigens present on cell membranes and their potential value in immunotherapy for cancer.

Dr. Tarro is on the editorial board of various Italian medical journals.  Dr Tarro has been elected to membership of many academies and societies. He has also been the recipient of many awards and honours.
