Research Description:

The research of this group focuses on translational research in the field of MASLD through the use of different experimental models, such as in vitro (from monocultures to more complex co-culture systems), in vivo models and translation to human subjects.

The Group’s scientific interests can be summarized as 1) the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of the liver disease, 2) the extrahepatic components involved in the onset of MASLD3) the study of bioactive properties of natural compounds as a therapeutic approach, 4) the in-silico individuation and in-vivo validation of non-invasive biomarkers for the early diagnosis of MASLD (such as steatohepatitis and liver fibrosis) and 5) communication of science for the non-scientific audience
