DI GIULIO GROUP
For many years, the group has been studying the mechanisms applied to regeneration in the nervous system.
The group has also been greatly involved in the identification of therapeutic strategies aimed at limiting degenerative processes of the Nervous System and recently has been paying attention to "motor neuron disease".
Research activities include four different areas through an integrative approach:
I) epigenetic regulation of neonatal diabetes and juvenile obesity;
II) neuroglia mediated neurotoxicity and role of mesenchymal stem cells from human adipose tissue during the inflammatory processes;
III) role of mesenchymal stem cells derived from adult human adipose tissue in the regeneration of function and coordination in motor disorders;
IV) identification of early molecular signals of motor neuron diseases (ALS).
WHAT SERVICE DO WE OFFER?
Thanks to decades of experience in tissue regeneration, the group offers the following services/expertise:
Histopathological characterization of degenerated nervous system;
Set up of pre-clinical experimental models;
Immunophenotypic characterization of mesenchymal and neural stem cells;
Characterization of neuroinflammatory processes;
Experimental approaches for studying motor behavior;
Instruments for analysis at molecular level such as real-time PCR, PCR, FACS, confocal microscopy, spectrophotometer, Ensight™ multimode plate reader, HPLC, mass spectrometry;
Tests for the evaluation of functional recovery (catwalk, vertical and horizontal grid tests, open field).
