My lab studies calcium homeostasis and mitochondria involvement in different physio-pathological processes. The main research lines are:
i) Mitochondrial dysfunctions and diseases.
ii) Onco-regulators at the mitochondria associated membranes (MAMs)
iii) Molecular identity of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore
