Research topics and methodology

  • Characterization of the endocannabinoid system through biochemical and biomolecular dosages
  • Study of the structural properties of metal-containing enzymes and of their interactions with biological membranes
  • In-vitro study of the antioxidant and/or anti-inflammatory activities of food-originated active principles extracted from food samples (e.g. fresh fruit, vegetal oils, wine, etc.) on human or animal cell cultures
  • In-vitro study on human or animal cell cultures of food-originated active principles or micronutrient action mechanisms through biochemical and biomolecular methods
