Current research interests:

Neuropharmacology, role of Dopamine systems in schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease, molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration, genetic and molecular risk factors for Alzheimer's disease; molecular mechanisms associated with neuroblastoma growth. 


Description of the main domain of research:

  • Identification and characterization of different DA receptor subtypes (named D1 and D2) in CNS and periphery (1978-1988)

  • Characterization of DA receptor function in schizophrenic brain (1980-1983)

  • Characterization of the transcriptional activity induced by glutamate receptor stimulation (1988-1991)

  • Characterization of the physiopathological role of the NF-kappaB pathway in the CNS (1993-present  

  • Discovery of neuroprotective activity of Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs (1995-1998)

  • Identification of p53 as a novel participant in neurodegenerative process (1997-present)

  • Characterization of the physiopathological role of DNA damage repair systems in neurodegenerative diseases (1998-2008)

  • Identification of p53 as a possible biomarker for Alzheimer disease (2000-present)
