inflammation Degeneration Infection
The research program on Molecular mechanisms of cellular DEath and Life decisions in Inflammation, Degeneration and Infection (MODEL-IDI) aims at performing fundamental research on the biology of cell death modalities, cell survival regulation and their consequences on the onset and/or progression of diseases. The program aims at linking the discoveries obtained in vitro on the molecular regulation of cell death and inflammation to their in vivo physiological relevance by making use of chemical tool compounds and experimental models of diseases, such as diabetes type I & II, hepatotoxicity and liver cancer,
atherosclerosis and neurodegenerative diseases.
