The research in our laboratory is focused on the investigation of glial cell and to clarify their role in neurological diseases. We suggest that targeting glia activation in different pathological scenarios may allow us to define common pathways to further understand the role of glia in neuroprotection . We are using three models: 1) Neurodegenerative disease – Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease 2) Stress condition –stroke. 3) Autoimmune disease – Multiple sclerosis.
