RESEARCH INTERESTS
Reproductive toxicology and neural development

The role of zinc transporters in fetal development

Neurotoxicological and immune system mediated cellular responses to nanoparticles, metals and Abeta with special emphasize on the influence of endogenous zinc signaling and zinc metabolism in cell survival and regeneration in Alzheimers disease and diabetes related neurodeneration. 

The anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties of metallic  gold towards neuroinflammatory- induced neurodegeneration.

METHODOLOGIES
Animal models of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions related to altered cognitive functions i.e. Alzheimer´s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis,  traumatic brain injury and diabetes

Cellular studies on immune cells, neurons and glia cells

Genetic and histopathological analyses of cell death mechanisms and inflammatory responses

Autometallographic detection of exogenous and endogenous metals

Immunohistochemistry, microdissection and stereology
