Research Synopsis

Processes of regulated cell death play key roles in the normal functioning of the organism and in multiple pathologies. My lab is focusing on the characterization of the basic mechanisms of cell death. We are particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms of cell death occurring in a wide range of human pathologies, including stroke, brain trauma and septic shock. In our studies, we use a combination of chemical biology, cell biology and biochemistry approaches. We hope that our studies will not only produce exciting new insights into the cellular regulatory networks controlling cell death, but also provide novel therapeutic agents to target cell death associated with human pathologies.
