The Department investigates the molecular basis and signaling pathways associated with damage and repair in ischemic and inflammatory-based diseases associated with abdominal organs (liver, pancreas, and kidney), cancer, and cardiovascular disease but also other. idiopathic diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis.

The research also includes new omic and protein markers with potential diagnostic and prognostic value for different pathologies, some of which are associated with the immune response.

New tools are being developed ranging from animal models to therapeutic strategies, including cell therapies, pharmacological approaches, or surgical maneuvers such as ischemic preconditioning, designed to promote the prevention, cure, and regeneration of the pathological process.
