Molecular Biology and Genetics

  • Molecular mechanisms and gene expression linked to the neurotransmitter systems of the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral districts (e.g. bowel, liver, bladder) in physiological and pathological conditions 
  • Identification of molecular targets for the development of new therapeutic strategies 
  • Quantification of RNA messenger and its protein product, at baseline and after treatment, for drug screening and characterization 
  • Molecular characterization of animal models


Main equipment used: 

  • Real time PCR
  • Capillary sequencer
  • Transilluminator UV / Chemioluminescent / Chemiofluorescent / Fuorescent, with photographic development
