the characterization of the molecular basis of metabolic diseases, mainly focusing on the investigation of inflammatory pathways and identification of mediators of inter-organ communication in these settings;
the study of the cellular mechanisms at the basis of the neurological complications of diabetes;
the pharmacological modulation of these pathways aimed at the prevention/management of the health consequences of metabolic related inflammation (“metaflammation”), as one of the key drivers of metabolic disorders and related neurological/cardiovascular co-morbidities.
