Research Activities
The research of the laboratory of Immunology mainly focuses on the study of immune response to infections. In detail the main topics are:

  • study of dendritic cell and macrophage biology and effect of hypoxic microenvironment on cell differentiation and proangiogenic activity;
  • role of dendritic cells on pathogen recognition, immune response and antimicrobial mechanisms;
  • study of the pathogenic mechanisms of Bartonella henselae

The team also studies the antimicrobial activity of new compounds, in particular:

  • molecules with rnase activity;
  • new antimicrobial delivery systems to counteract multidrug resistant bacterial infections

Moreover the laboratory team collaborates with the Skin Bank of the AUO Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino (directed by Dott.ssa Castagnoli) to study pathological inflammatory conditions and in particular the processes involved in the wound healing.
The members of the laboratory are co-inventors of the Italian patent n. 102020000022984 (University of Turin) "COMPOSITION INCLUDING ALBUMIN NANOPARTICLES ENCAPSULATING AN ANTIBIOTIC"
