Our laboratory devotes effort to understand the molecular mechanisms linking environmental stresses to disease pathogenesis. Research in the last decade has focused mainly on understanding the functions and roles of newly discovered mutated genes in the development of cancer and associated disorders. However, the exposure to environmental factors, through the regulation and expression of virulent eukaryotic proteins, has often been an ignored permanent challenge for an organism.

Based on the integration of experimental mouse models, combined with the use of state-of-the art technologies and human data, we aim to provide a comprehensive study for a rational approach towards the development of novel mechanism-based therapies to prevent and treat diseases.
