Research Activities
Prof. Bono, Dr. Bellisario, Dr. Squillacioti 

  • Molecular epidemiology in the living and working environment. Inflammatory processes, oxidative stress.
  • Measurement of behaviors and lifestyles for primary prevention and health promotion.
  • Biological and epidemiological techniques for quantifying the biological effects of moderate and adapted physical activity, as a determinant of health and well-being, in populations according to the age group, in physiological, pathological and pregnancy conditions and in the living and working environment.

Prof. Schilirò

  • Monitoring of air quality with in vitro tests.
  • Health Impact of environmental pollution through the Risk Assessment application.
  • Estrogenic activity as an exposure biomarker, quantified with in vitro assays in environmental matrices and biological samples.

Prof. Traversi

  • Exposure to bioaerosols and particulates and effects on human health
  • Modulation of the intestinal microbiota and prevention
  • Microbiome of environmental matrices variations and implications for environmental sustainability and human health 

Prof. Carraro, Prof. Fea, Prof. Bonetta, Dr. Pignata

  • Cytotoxic, genotoxic, epigenetic and oxidative effects of atmospheric particles measured by the Comet assay on human cells in vitro.
  • Early biological effects (DNA damage, chromosomal breaks, oxidative stress) caused by risk factors in the living and working environment.
  • Antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and resistance genes (ARG) in environmental matrices.
  • The emerging pathogens in the integrated water cycle. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the treatments.
  • Epidemiological surveillance of SARS-CoV2 in urban wastewater.
  • Ecotoxicological tests (V. fischeri, D. magna, P. subcapitata).
  • Healthiness and quality of natural mineral waters.
