Activity

The research team cover all Major Neurocognitive Disorders (DSM-5), in particular Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal lobar degeneration. We operate early diagnosis of disease, using CSF biomarkers, neuroimaging and neuropsychological testing. The patients are "screened" for the major genes of disease. In collaboration with several national and international research centers (Toronto, London, Houston) the group carries out genome-wide studies to isolate new risk factors of disease. Several Phase III studies are in progress, based on FDA protocols, to ensure safety and effectiveness of new symptomatic or disease-modyfing drugs  for neurodegenerative diseases. The Group participates to collaborative studies to evaluate the effects of metabolic drugs in experimental models of Alzheimer disease and the role of microvesicles isolated from CSF in the progression of the disease and in neurotoxicity mechanisms.

 

Group’s ECR Sectors:

LS2_6 - Molecular genetics, reverse genetics and RNAi

LS4_4 - Ageing

LS5_11 - Neurological disorders (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease)
