Research interest

Our research is mainly devoted to the study of human endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) since their discovery in 1997 and to their applications in the cardiovascular field. Macrovascular endothelial cells (human umbilical vein endothelial cells, HUVEC) are also used in different in vitro settings. In particular: tissue engineering for regeneration of ischemic tissues (myocardium, hind limb) by natural and synthetic matrices and stem cells.
Biology of human endothelial progenitor cells: effect of cardiovascular risk factors and drugs on the number, function and molecular mechanisms of cellular transduction, monitoring the number of endothelial progenitor cells and endothelial function in patients with cardiovascular risk, diabetes, rare diseases.
