Vascular alterations and plasticity in neuropathological conditions

 

Research summary

In the recent past I have been interested in original computerized approaches to quantify the organization of vascular trees in human tumor xenografts according to amount, caliber and dispersion of vessels.

Expanding these interests, I am investigating the spatial distribution of neurovascular elements - vessels, glia, neurons – and their importance in neuropathological conditions. This approach has already addressed the analysis of impaired angioarchitectures in neurological disorders, as well as the analysis of microglial cells distribution in neuroinflammatory pathologies

Actually, I am more and more committed in linking vascular alterations with the onset of neurodegenerative pathologies both in the CNS or at the periphery.

In addition to these efforts, the Lab is providing help to set up high-throughput analyses of biological samples in support to research groups dealing with image analysis issues.
