  The research topics in the biochemistry field deal with:

  • Response to oxidative stress in different tissues and cells systems.
  • Dysregulation of enzyme activities in the onset and progression of pathological states.
  • Metabolism of toxic aldehydes.
  • Modulation of enzyme activities involved in the onset of diabetic complications and inflammation.
  • Modulation of oxidoreductases involved in the onset of chemoresistance in cancer cells.

The research topics in the Hygiene field deal with:

  • Environmental and food virology studies aiming to study the presence and spread in the environment of pathogenic viruses.
