Interessi di ricerca

  • Study of the molecular mechanisms involved in regulation of respiratory virus replication and host cell response (death/survival; inflammatory and immune response);
  • Study of relationship between intra/extracellular redox state and viral infection and evaluation of antiviral effect of compounds with antioxidant activity in vitro and in vivo models.
  • Study of new antiviral strategies aimed at inhibiting host cell functions, rather than viral structure, that are essential for replication of different viruses. Identification and characterization of new synthesized or natural antiviral compounds.
  • Evaluation of antiviral activity of new synthesized or natural molecules in vitro and in vivo models.
  • Study of cooperation between different pathogens (bacteria and viruses) in the pathogenesis of acute and chronic diseases.
