Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of glomerular diseases, in pathophysiology of chronic renal failure. We generated genetically engineered mouse models and immortalized podocyte cell lines that explore the effects of grown factors as VEGF-A in health and in diseases. We study how general disorders like diabetes or local disorders such as glomerulopathy can induce irreversible kidney damage. Employing genetic, molecular biology and multiple imaging tools either in vivo or in vitro, we identify the mechanisms involved in kidney disorders that may be useful to design prevention and treatment strategies to target fatal renal abnormalities.
Research interests include Glomerular filtration barrier; chronic renal failure; diabetic nephropaty; proteinuria; cell biology; protein interaction; VEGF-A.
