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 department studies the biological bases and molecular mechanisms of brain aging and brain pathologies, including neurodegenerative, cerebrovascular, and neuroinflammatory diseases. In the same way, it addresses the study of brain circuits and synaptic processes involved in neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia.
